Free Forum - Honduras: Repression and Resistance
Lucy Rodriguez, Attorney, member of recent Fact-Finding Mission of International Jurists to Honduras
In a return to the "bad old ways" of Latin America, business elites in Honduras backed a coup against the democratically elected president Zelaya. The people of Honduras have continued to resist the coup, however, and demand the return of their president.
Now Zelaya has returned to the country, taking up refuge in the Brazilian embassy.
Why is Honduras important? What role is the US playing and what role should it be playing? We will discuss these and other aspects of this startling political drama.
Free and open to all. Wheelchair accessible.
