  • Despite Aguan "Land Agreement", Continued Repression in Honduran African Palm Oil Plantations
    By : August 05, 2010
    Events occurring on the northern coast of Honduras around the agrarian conflict in the Valle de Aguan remain largely unreported, even as the human rights situation continues to deteriorate. The mainstream media in the country, highly responsible for ignoring or distorting the widespread resistance to the June 2009 coup d' etat, recognizes that any additional signs of ‘instability' might further deter foreign investment.

  • Honduran Junta Murdering Journalists
    By Stephen Lendman - : August 03, 2010
    Orchestrated by Washington, it discussed the June 28, 2009 coup, Honduran soldiers arresting President Manuel Zelaya at gunpoint, exiling him to Costa Rica, obstructing his return, committing widespread killings and human rights abuses, conducting a sham November 2009 election under martial law, installing Porfirio (Pepe) Lobo Sosa president on January 27, 2010, the Obama administration's man in Honduras, succeeding interim leader, Roberto Micheletti, using death squad terror to solidify coup d'etat rule, what most Hondurans oppose and want ended.

  • Corruption, Impunity, and the OAS High Commission
    By : August 02, 2010
    Today begins a litany of denunciations by the far right of the OAS report as covered in the pro-coup press of Honduras. Unlike the bombast in Proceso Digital that we blogged about yesterday, these attacks are all carefully attributed to specific individuals with institutional positions lending them credibility at first glance.

  • Proceso Digital: Advocacy Journalism?
    By : August 01, 2010
    Proceso Digital, the online digital newspaper that boasts of being run by professional journalists, demonstrated yet again the worst possible example of why Honduran journalism is in trouble. The provocation? Covering the report of the OAS High Commission on Honduras.

  • Increasing Repression in Aguán
    By : July 30, 2010

  • UN Critical of Justice Dismissal
    By : July 30, 2010
    None of the decisions that led to the dismissal of the judges and the magistrate contains the legal grounds that justify why the conduct that was the object of the disciplinary proceedings was considered to be grave.
    So concluded the report of three UN Human Rights experts made public in Geneva, Switzerland, yesterday.

  • Open Letter from the Liberal Party
    By : July 30, 2010

    By : July 27, 2010

  • Economic basics: Edmundo Orellana on half-time jobs
    By : July 27, 2010
    It is far too easy to become swept up in political strategies and statements. While the outside world is consumed with questions of OAS recognition, inside Honduras, policy decisions continue to be made, and these are moving mainly below the radar.

  • US "dangerous approach rewards illegal and violent regime change"
    By : July 27, 2010
    The Center for Constitutional Rights has released a letter sent to US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton opposing easy readmission into the OAS for Honduras.
