This context of the pandemic has provoked an aggravation of the agrarian conflict with an increase in threats of evictions of various communities, as well as attacks against leaders who defend the right to land and territory, especially in the departments of Alta and Baja Verapaz. An example of this was the eviction in April of more than 36 indigenous Mayan Poqomchi' families from the community of Washington (Purulhá, Baja Verapaz). This is a paradigmatic case as it was the first eviction executed during the State of Calamity, despite the announcement that all eviction orders were suspended. It was carried out by non-state actors and therefore without the presence of public security forces or the authorities responsible for ensuring respect for human rights. It was perpetrated with violence: homes were burned, crops were destroyed, the evicted families were prevented from taking their belongings with them and they were not relocated. In October, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) granted precautionary protection measures to the families and requested that the State of Guatemala implement the necessary measures to protect their right to life and personal integrity.
