World Peace Wednesdays: Peacemakers in South Africa

The African National Congress fought injustice in South Africa for over 100 years. Last month, Tanenbaum sent members of the Frente Nacional de Resistencia Popular, a much younger, but similar organization fighting injustice in one of the world's most violent nations, Honduras, to South Africa. There, the Hondurans worked with and learned from the ANC and other key South African organizations.

The outcomes were stunning – and are ongoing. The Tanenbaum-sponsored intervention was the first interaction between the FNRP and ANC, and is designed to substantially bolster prospects for a participatory democracy in Honduras.
