TSJ Solidarity Sendoff for the Honduras Delegation
Three months ago, U.S.-trained generals infamous for participation in the famous 1980s military death squads interrupted constitutional order in Honduras through a military coup d'état against democratically elected president Manuel Zelaya. In the wake of widespread reports of human rights violations and amidst a climate of intense repression and strong social resistance, La Voz de los de Abajo and Casa Morazan are organizing a solidarity delegation to Honduras next month. Teachers for Social Justice and others have been invited to send representatives and we will be sending two. You are invited to come learn about the resistance, express your solidarity with the people of Honduras, and celebrate the departure of this powerful Chicago-based delegation.
