The Acts of the Democracies




Coup in Guatemala

The USA CIA overthrows the dictatorship of General Miguel Ydigoras in Guatemala. Ydigoras had been planning to step down in 1964 and hold elections. The USA feared that the previously elected president Juan José Arévalo (overthrown by the CIA in 1954) would regain power.

The new regime does not hold elections.
