STORIES FROM HONDURAS
Carol Marujo and Martha Rollins will present a program about Honduras. A coup d'etat in June 2009 removed the democratically-elected president Mel Zelaya from office. Seven years later a human rights delegation visited Honduras to learn about the situation in the country today. Carol and Martha were part of that delegation that traveled to many parts of the country, met with many civil society leaders; the family of the murdered indigenous/environmental rights leader, Berta Cáceres; and the US ambassador to Honduras. This will be a very compelling presentation, don't miss it.
