On this day in 1954, CIA-sponsored Exile Army succeeds in overthrowing Guatemala’s Jacobo Árbenz after major lobbying efforts by the United Fruit Company, an arm of US imperialism which John Foster Dulles owned major stock in.

Árbenz had become enormously popular, with an Agrarian Reform policy which saw uncultivated portions of large land-holdings expropriated in return for compensation and redistributed to poverty-stricken agricultural laborers. Approximately 500,000 people benefited from the decree.

Árbenz had threatened to nationalise the United Fruit Company, which was an arm of US imperialism exploiting Guatemala. John Foster Dulles owned significant stock in the United Fruit Company. The coup was led by CIA asset General Castillo Armas, what would follow would be 4 decades of US-backed brutality by successive dictatorial regimes, which fought to protect US interests. Among the horrors was the genocide of the Maya people.
