Honduras
Respond to the request of human rights leaders in Honduras to come to their country to help prevent further atrocities from taking place. World attention towards Honduras has diminished after US-approved November elections legitimized the June coup, while assassinations of resistance members has increased. Leaders of the human rights community have requested a constant presence of international visitors to bring attention to this situation and help protect the lives of Hondurans. We are urging SOA Watch activists to join the June 24 - July 1, 2010 Quixote Center delegation (contact Jenny Atlee, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
