Honduras: Nonviolent Resistance to Land Takeovers through Community Organizing and Coalition Building
May 25 - June 3
In the months since the assassination of indigenous leader Berta Caceres and in the years since the 2009 coup in Honduras, violence against those standing for justice has only continued. The need to stand in solidarity with Honduran people fighting for a just world is critical. This delegation will explore the connections between violence in Honduras, U.S. aid, and corporate interests, as well as issues surrounding land rights for indigenous and campesino communities. Now is a crucial time to learn about how U.S. taxpayer dollars are impacting Honduras and to learn from Hondurans whose struggles in many was parallel those in the United States.
Participants on this delegation will:
- Meet with Honduran civil society organizations advocating for indigenous, Afro-indigenous, and campesino communities
- Learn about the effects of neoliberal corporate development projects on these communities
- Engage in dialogue and skill-sharing with Hondurans to learn how to better organize around similar challenges faced in the U.S.
