  • 43 Confirmed Political Murders in Honduras (More Unconfirmed)
    By : March 03, 2010

  • Honduras After the Coup: Fear and Defiance
    By Peter Lackowski - : March 03, 2010

This slogan was chanted by the thousands of demonstrators who defied the illegitimate de facto government imposed by the Honduran military in the protests that erupted throughout the country immediately after the after the coup of June 28, 2009. I recently visited Honduras along with a delegation led by Rights Action, a human rights group based in Toronto and Washington, D. C. I was introduced to the role that fear plays in the political life of the country, and to the importance of the fact that so many people are ready to defy that fear.
