Honduras


Believe, when you are most unhappy, that there is something for you to do in the world. So long as you can sweeten another’s pain, life is not in vain.
~Hellen Keller

I ask my readers to sign an Amnesty International petition to help Honduras back in its democracy.

Beatings and mass arrests are being used by the de facto government of Honduras as a way of punishing people for voicing their opposition to the military-backed coup d’etat in June. Scores of interviews by an Amnesty International delegation on the ground told the same story of beatings and mass arrests by the police, of media workers and human rights defenders being targeted and female protesters suffering gender based violence.

You can sign the petition to Hillary R. Clinton following this link:

    If anyone ought to be blamed for Honduas not having democracy, and living in dictatorial misery, then it’s Ronald Reagan.

  2. I will said it was Mr Truman and Mr Eisenhower, who established and expanded the School of Americas which trained dictators and assassins from all Latin america countries except Costa Rica and Mexico. By a inocent coincidence, only these two countries did not have a military dictatorship in the last century.
