In the United States, I am sure that among the 340 municipalities of Guatemala there are Guatemalan expatriates who feel origin, longing, nostalgia and belonging to the place they left and who wish they could when they return. If we leave it, it will be better and opportunities for new generations to grow more than ever before and that migratory processes do not continue to break up the family nucleus, the loose social fabric and the economically active population of communities.
But in the face of this situation, migrants must continue to fight for those dreams of seeing their original municipalities transformed, looking for alternatives from afar and working together to start the organization process abroad and in our own communities in Guatemala. to be in perfect harmony with our relatives so that together, let us seek the long-awaited development and the dream of Guatemala, which sets new horizons for the population in general, because today the support and social, social, With the economic and political potential, great changes can be made in each municipality, setting examples of progress to encourage others to do the same.
I am fully convinced that the processes take time and are tools that are gradually consolidated in ways that motivate and convince the organization of Guatemalan migrants abroad, with farmers in Guatemala to accept the organization processes. is different in a way, possibly because they have acquired a new temperament, coexistence and new paradigm from being in a country where there are different opportunities for all with a significant level of purchasing power.
The organization today represents a united force that leads us towards specific objectives, that seeks to bring together all the actors in the different sectors that are present in each municipality (emigrants, traders, relatives of emigrants, the general population, native formatively) interact mutually. Local authorities can If they agree with the proposal proposed by this group, then they should be included, otherwise continue the initiative of migrants and their families in each municipality.
The municipalities already have a lot of power, but due to the lack of a good organization, they are not taken advantage of, considering that each municipality has a huge potential in remittances to Guatemalans living abroad, which they can take advantage of. Make productive investments to transform and establish local economies and stop being consumers of large commercial emporiums.
Remember that organization is made up of a group of individuals who work together to achieve certain objectives. These individuals contribute aspirations and energy, resources to achieve the goals, but this is not enough to achieve the goals: working with a platform organized by each municipality to make those changes in smaller areas , it is necessary to channel and direct action. that linking them together will lead to the development and progress of the whole of Guatemala.
We are in a time of electoral processes and the participation of the migrant population in them is crucial and what better way than for those who aspire to elected office to dare to participate in the candidacy for mayor of their municipalities, because they live in those places. know best and they have knowledge of the real problem and not of the national context. I am sure that many expatriates want to go to municipal governments and put into practice what they have seen and experienced in a country with different public policies.
