From José "Chencho" Alas, Tanenbaum Peacemaker in Action:
Two years ago, Honduras was in turmoil. The military gave a coup d’état under the orders of the Supreme Court and installed in the presidency Roberto Michelleti who was the head of the National Assembly. Since that, fourteen journalists have been murdered in the Central American country, and with them many more grassroots activists have disappeared, been murdered, or left the country due to the violence.
Chencho Alas runs the Foundation for Sustainability and Peacemaking in Mesoamerica and blogs at Mesoamerican Peace Movement.
