Civil Leader of the Revolution of October 20, 1944

A true patriot, a man of integrity who fought for the sublime ideals of the national good, with faith and hope in a better Guatemala. His courageous participation in the revolutionary movement was decisive, as well as his leading role as a member of the Revolutionary Government that called for free elections and gave the President-elect a brilliant new state, profoundly reformed with humanist and democratic ideals, an innovative constitution inspired by freedom and justice and a modern structure and administrative organization that included, among other benefits, the independence of the three branches of government.

The survivors of the Group of 14, remember him with appreciation and we present this commemorative plaque on the 57th anniversary of this glorious part of history. Guatemala, October 20, 2011
