Honduras Military Coup
Lisa Sullivan, Latin America Coordinator
School of the Americas Watch,
will be the featured speaker at a brunch at the Redwoods Presbyterian Church, 110 Magnolia Avenue, Larkspur. The event will be held on.
For over thirty years Ms. Sullivan has lived in Venezuela. For twenty-one years she worked as a Maryknoll lay missioner in that area. In her current position with SOA Watch, Lisa leads delegations to Latin American countries to meet with political officials and social movement leaders. In April she met with Manuel Zelaya, the democratically elected president of Honduras, and urged him to stop sending students to the School of the Americas, Fort Benning, Georgia. Among the SOA's graduates are notorious dictators Manuel Noriega and Omar Torrijos of Panama; Leopoldo Galtieri and Roberto Viola of Argentina; Juan Velasco Alvarado of Peru; Guillermo Rodriguez of Ecuador; and Hugo Banzer Suarez of Bolivia.
Shortly after the military coup in Honduras on June 28, led by graduates of the SOA, Lisa returned to Honduras to stand in solidarity with social movements struggling for the return of President Zelaya and an end to repression.
