In 2009, U.S. trained militaries overthrew the democratically elected government of Honduras. Today, Honduras is facing state repression, death squad killings, violence, and impunity. The U.S. government and North American resource extraction companies maintain profitable economic and military relations with Honduras post-military coup regime.

In the face of ongoing repression by the regime, the Honduran people continue to organize and work for a return to democracy, for justice, dignity and self determination. There have been 206 politically motivated murders of Resistance activists by the military, police, and private armies employed by the largest landowners such as Miguel Facusse.

One of the major impediments to the peoples struggle in Honduras is that the United States government is empowering and legitimizing the regime. The leaders of the military coup, and virtually all of the key players in the current violent repression campaigns in Honduras, have received their training at the School of the Americas, a U.S. terrorist training camp, based in Fort Benning Georgia.

The U S military and police training must be stopped, and the entire barbaric foreign policy agenda must be destroyed.

We call on the Anonymous collective to expose the soldiers and instructors at the School of the Americas, the corporations and financial institutions, and everyone else responsible for the atrocities.

Join us from November 22-24, 2013, at the gates of Fort Benning Georgia.

Repression And Violence In Honduras Do Not Just Happen - They Are Policy


Repression, corruption and impunity continue unabated in Honduras. Please send copies of this article, and your own letters, to your Canadian and American politicians (MPs, Congress members and Senators) and to your own media. Since the June 2009 military coup, that ousted the democratically elected government, Honduras has become the 'Murder Capital of the world'. State repression has reached the levels of the worst years of the 1980s.

Since the coup, the U.S. and Canadian governments have 'legitimized the illegitimate' post-coup regime. North American companies and investors have increased business activities in mining, sweatshops and tourism in Honduras since the coup. The regime remains in power due in large part to its political, economic and military relations with the U.S. and Canada.

There are no signs this repression, violence, corruption and impunity will decrease, even as a majority of Hondurans courageously support the LIBRE political party that will participate in the November 2013 presidential elections ... in a hope of putting an end to their nightmare.

Across Honduras, community based organizations in the pro-democracy movement need considerably more human rights accompaniment, funding, media attention on the harms and violations and education and activism in Canada and the U.S.
