2018-11-26 22:37
Mr. Manuel Véliz, 30, from Guatemala What happened this morning? -We participated in a peaceful demonstration. We went to, I think it’s a railway booth, and the situation got a little bit tense, but nothing serious, no beatings or anything. And what’s the plan now? -Well, to keep waiting, with the hope of being able to cross. What are you waiting for? -Well, to have the option. It’s difficult but not impossible, to be able to cross. Are you going to try to cross again? -If it’s possible, yes. Otherwise, by force, no. Did you seek asylum? -Yes, I applied for asylum. How was it to march towards the border but not crossing it? -Well, it’s frustrating, but we know it’s difficult and we must be patient. Do you think that if you try more times, it will be possible? -I think it will be possible when all people will be like one voice, one same step. And not some of them divided on one side and others on another side.
