Join a Honduras Accompaniment Delegation: Nov 27-Dec 4th 2010

Your presence is urgently needed in Honduras. Over a year after the coup in Honduras, heavy repression continues to destroy lives, families and trample human rights. Levels of impunity, militarization and para-militarization create what partners describe as a state of war against the people.

Delegation FAQ

 
 
What kinds of things will we be doing on the delegation? Delegation activities will be decided on a daily basis, based largely on the on-the-ground situation and the requests from our Honduran partners. Activities may include:

  • Visiting the non-governmental human rights office
  • Accompanying lawyers and human rights promoters to detention facilities and hospitals to verify the whereabouts and condition of detainees

Preparation Manual for Solidarity and Accompaniment Delegations in Post-Coup Honduras

A Solidarity and Accompaniment Delegation to Honduras with the Quixote Center is for people who are willing to have their lives touched and forever changed. The primary reasons for considering a Quixote Center delegation to Honduras in the context of the current political tension is to answer the call from the Honduran people for international presence. The Honduran people are waging a historic and persistent nonviolent struggle against military and economic hegemony.

Honduras Accompaniment Project: Delegations

In June, 2009 a military coup détat was carried out in Honduras, sending shock waves throughout the Americas.  

The military takeover of Honduras has galvanized a massive resistance movement that draws from nearly all sectors of society. 

People are responding to the repression with an astounding message: They are afraid of us, because we are not afraid of them!
