Transcript of PRESIDENTIAL SCANDAL
Indigenous and students involved
The people did it
Remove the president’s immunity
Guatemala President Otto Perez Molina resigns in face of arrest warrant
A major day of action kicked off early on Thursday, with marches and roadblocks across the country. Urban groups, which have spearheaded regular protests since the scandal broke in April, on Thursday sought to unite with rural and indigenous organizations who have orchestrated the road blocks.
By early afternoon, thousands, were marching in several cities across the country.
The demonstration in Guatemala City was filled to bursting with a diverse and peaceful crowd ranging from the indigenous poor to the well-healed, and included many students from public and private universities.
Perez Molina, who had said he would not resign, changed his position after the nation's prosecutor announced late Wednesday that a warrant had been issued for his arrest. Congress had voted on Tuesday to strip the president of his immunity from prosecution.
