Parking available. Free and open to the public

On June 28, 2009 a military coup ousted democratically elected Honduran President Manuel Zelaya. Nearly two years later, the democracy movement in Honduras continues fighting for rights and freedom against a repressive regime.

Since the coup took place, Grahame Russell, a human rights activist, lawyer and co-director of Rights Action, has been accompanying and writing about the democracy movement in Honduras.

On Wednesday, April 27, Russell will share reports and a short documentary on current events in Honduras. He will also discuss the US government’s support for the coup, and what activists in the US can do in solidarity.

Toward Freedom editor Ben Dangl will discuss related political developments in US-Latin American relations under the Barack Obama administration.

The event is sponsored by Toward Freedom, a Vermont-based progressive website on world affairs.
