Justice for Berta and Beyond: The Fight Against Impunity and Corruption in Honduras
Tuesday, October 11th at 7:00pm, in Arts and Sciences Room 113
The 2009 military coup in Honduras has cemented the Central American nation as a hotbed of human rights abuses, the new frontier in the US-led War on Drugs, and an all-out plunder of national territory and resources. Martín Fernández is the National Coordinator of the Movement for Dignity and Justice (MADJ), which seeks to expose and combat state violence and corruption, while organizing communities around the principles of self-determination, ecological sustainability, and collective resistance. Martín will discuss this grassroots organization’s work in the context of Honduras today, and how US policies and security aid contribute directly to the ongoing crisis.
