As the 10 year anniversary of the June 28, 2009 coup in Honduras nears, join the Honduras Solidarity Network in a webinar update on the fight for democracy and justice against the US and Canadian-backed regime in Honduras.
For 10 whole years, Hondurans have maintained an incredible and powerful resistance against neoliberalism, militarism, and corruption and continue to demand real democracy, community-based and driven development, and a "refounding" of the country. The resistance against the 2009 coup, continues to inspire many and as we speak, another powerful movement has come together bringing thousands of Hondurans back into the streets once again.
Teachers and health care workers have ignited this latest upsurge as they refused to accept the regime’s dismantling of public education and health care. On May 30th, they declared a national strike that in many respects, has not stopped. All the diverse peoples' movements from around the country took up the strike and 45 days later the non-violent uprising continues to grow despite repression. But Honduras is being ignored by most of the media in the US and Canada because those governments are supporting the dictatorship.
Find out what is going on, what the role of the US and Canada has been in the last 10 years, and how to support the people in Honduras.
WEBINAR with Karen Spring and Victoria Cervantes of the Honduras Solidarity Network in North America.
