Defend Democracy in Honduras. Protect Hondurans in the U.S.

HONDURAS-_Los_Angeles_-FINAL_(004).jpg

 

The unraveling of democracy in Honduras has worrying implications for both regional stability and the future of Honduran communities living in the United States. On January 27, Juan Orlando Hernandez took a controversial oath of office for a second term as the President of Honduras following fraught elections, allegations of fraud, a muzzling of media in the country, and state-backed violence against protesters that has left more than 30 people dead.

Despite calls for a new election from the Organization of American States (OAS), the United States has endorsed the results. Meanwhile, even as the US Department of State has called for US citizens to avoid travel to Honduras, the US government has deported some 700 people to the country since January 1, and may well cancel Temporary Protected Status for Honduras this spring, potentially placing 57,000 fully vetted, work-authorized people in deportation proceedings.

WHAT:
Alianza Americas will bring a Honduran journalist and a Honduran human rights advocate to the United States for dialogue with government, community, faith, and international leaders in the three US cities—Los Angeles, New York City, and Washington, DC—where the most Honduran immigrants voted in the country’s fraught elections in November 26, 2017.
WHO:
Honduran guest speakers will share on-the-ground perspectives of events leading up to and following the country’s controversial elections, linking with US-based leaders in collective action to advance democracy and protect Honduran diaspora.
• Joaquin Mejía is a commentator on Radio Progreso, a Jesuit radio station that has been attacked in the aftermath of the elections.
• Claudia Mendoza is a highly regarded freelance journalist and documentary producer who has served as a Univision correspondent for nearly 20 years

    Specialists and backers caution that the unsaid US underwriting of the polluted decision and proceeded with help for the ill-conceived President Juan Orlando Hernandez will create shakiness and confusion in Honduras, driving more Hondurans to look for asylum over their fringes.
