Speaking Event: People's Victory in Honduras
Come and hear a Honduras Solidarity Network delegation report-back on the Honduran Resistance Movement.
In the aftermath of the US-backed coup of June 2009, the National Popular Resistance Front arose in Honduras and has successfully united peasants, urban labor (especially teachers), feminists, militant youth, LBGT, and environmentalists. Most recently they organized an electoral wing, the Libre Party, which broke the two-party monopoly in the national primary elections.
In addition, since the coup, Honduras has become the murder capital of the world. Repression has intensified with human rights abuses amounting to crimes against humanity. Peasants, labor organizers, women, journalists, and human rights activists have been targeted. Presenters will discuss the repressive regime in Honduras that is funded, trained, and to an extent directed by the US government under the aegis of the so-called war on drugs.
Learn about international delegations being organizad to monitor the November 2013 national elections at the request of the Honduran Resistance Movement.
