GUATEMALA CITY (AP) -- Guatemalans are pasting up thousands of posters and have opened a museum to remember the 45,000 people who disappeared during the country's 36-year civil war.

Some of the activists say they hope the actions will prompt the country's government to do more to find and identify the missing.

So far, the government has not complied with a ruling by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights to search for the victims as quickly as possible and build a park or plaza in the memory of the disappeared.
