Guatemala, 1944 - Teachers demonstrated in the streets in front of the National Palace demanding fair wages, freedom to organize, and the resignation of President General Jorge Ubico, a harsh dictator for over 14 years. The massive protests were on their third day when the President sent in his cavalry to break up the crowd by opening fire, killing over 200 including the beloved leader of the Teacher's Union movement, Mrs. Maria Chinchilla, who became a martyr.  This was the turning point which grew into the October Revolution.  This series of new paintings, drawings & mixed media works tells a compelling story by way of Julia and her friends from "Julia's Journeys."
