The Honduran Struggle Against Privatization, Environmental Destruction, and Human Rights Abuses

Honduran community activist Gilberto Flores and Jenni Petullo of Rights Action spoke about the history and current political situation in Honduras on April 13 at the Resource Center for Nonviolence in Santa Cruz.

Privatization of public services, the building of mega-dams, deforestation, and harmful mining practices, as well as human rights abuses are among the challenges facing Honduran communities. Flores and Petullo discussed how these problems fit within the context of corporate globalization, international financial institutions, and multilateral trade agreements.

This event provided an in-depth perspective on Honduras, presented ways North Americans can support struggles for global justice.
