Just received the following message from our friend and colleague Carlos Marentes of Via Campesina North America:
“Thanks for all the work you and your colleagues are doing to support the fight against the golpistas. As you know, the band of usurpers headed by Micheletti lifted the curfew but the Military repression continues. There are reports of many people arrested, kidnappings, and recent killings of social leaders. Therefore, we urgently need to increase the pressure on the Obama administration and Congress to move from mere declarations to concrete actions against the Coup. Thanks again and I send you and your colleagues my best wishes. -Carlos”
For folks in NYC, please come out tonight (7/15) for an Evening of Solidarity with Honduras.
