With the planned inauguration this weekend of former general Otto Perez Molina as the new president of Guatemala, concern turns to the indigenous communities of that country, once targets of genocide at the hands of Guatemala's military. This edition of Latin Pulse takes a special look at indigenous issues throughout the hemisphere, with a focus not only on Guatemala, but also Bolivia, and review of the administration of Alejandro Toledo in Peru. The news segment of the program includes a report about the tour of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad through Latin America and Iran's links to Venezuela.
