The New Honduras

05/23/2010 - Things are back to normal in Honduras.

At least that’s the message of right-wing president Porfirio “Pepe” Lobo Sosa and much of the international community. Several U.S. and international agencies are in the process of restoring aid to Honduras. U.S. biofuels, mining and other businesses are ramping up for increased investment in the impoverished Central American country. The massive repression of public protests, curfews and censorship that followed last summer’s coup d’etat have abated.

But this image ignores a new reality in Honduras: the emergence of what many are calling death squads carrying out targeted assassinations, brutal attacks and threats. They have created an extreme climate of fear for the campesinos (peasants), teachers, union members, journalists and other community leaders involved in the resistance movement that continues to oppose the coup and Lobo’s election.

The Meaning of the Coup for Democracy Here and in Latin America

Sponsored by:
* MIT Western Hemisphere Project
* Mass. Global Action
* Proyecto Hondureño
* Colombia Vive
* Democratic Socialists of America
* United for Justice with Peace
* Chelsea Uniting Against the War
* Project Voice/American Friends Service Committee

MIT - Lecture Hall 26-100 - 6:30 PM

With an introduction by Prof. Rodolfo Pastor, Minister of Culture of Zelaya's government and Visiting Prof. of History at the Faculty of Arts and Science, Harvard University

On November 29th, elections were carried out amidst defacto military rule in Honduras. For four and a half months the country has suffered media censorship, widespread human rights violations, brutality against women and the LGBT community, and targeted assasinations of resistance leaders. Though Barack Obama initially condemned the coup which ousted democratically-elected president Manuel Zelaya, his administration expressed no qualms with these abuses, and has recognized the farce elections.

With this we witness the inauguration of a new model: overturn the leftist and replace him with the oligarch. So long as elections are realized, regardless of the conditions, the US will support you. This is a betrayal of the sovereignty of Latin American, proving to the world that the superpower, even under Obama, will support military coups and mass brutality so long as they bolster US interests.

Professor Noam Chomsky, veteran commentator on Latin American affairs, will discuss the coup in Honduras, and what it means to the hemisphere. Join us in this evening of solidarity with the Honduran resistance.

[Past] Fast for Honduras!

10/05/2009 - Are you able to fast in a public place in front of an institution that has supported the coup in Honduras (eg catholic church, a relevant embassy/consulate/political institution, a business that has supported the coup, etc) for part of this date? Make a cardboard sign or banner with reference to the worldwide fast for honduras, talk to people passing by and let them know what is happening in honduras / invite people to find out more and join in solidarity efforts, and have a photo taken and send it to us via email, website, facebook, etc.. If with more time you can do this or organise a bigger group of people it is not necessary to do it on the 5th October although this is ideal because it is the 100th day of the resistance.. This can be in the form of a (water only, liquids only) fast for the duration of the demonstration, you could also be promoting a boycott as a form of fasting

[PAST] No to a meeting by Hillary Clinton with the Honduran coup-makers in Washington!

Call the State Department (202-647-4000) Monday 8/24/09; ask ten friends to call!

According to State Department spokesperson Ian Kelly, an official delegation of the regime installed by military coup in Honduras is invited to Washington to meet with U.S. "officials". The meeting will be to work "toward restoration of democratic and constitutional power in Honduras."

The dictatorial regime has used violence for two months, including the murders of union members by gunfire. It is an illegal regime. The Organization of American States has said so, with the U.S. voting to that effect. Argentina and other countries have expelled the Honduran coup regime's diplomats.
