November Elections Delegation

La Voz de los de Abajo - Chicago

Join Us in November 2013 in Honduras
Human Rights and Election Observer Delegation

On June 28, 2009 there was a coup d’├ętat in Honduras. The coup carried out by the Honduran oligarchy, military, and police was condemned around the world but encouraged by the U.S. government which has continued to work to legitimize the coup governments. Many tens of thousands of Hondurans took to the street in resistance and have maintained their resistance for more than 3 years despite a continuing human rights crises that has left hundreds of activists murdered.

Now a real opposition party born out of the resistance movement is participating in the national elections on November 24, 2013.  The LIBRE Party is running ahead of the traditional pro-coup parties and its candidates and supporters are the targets of violence and intimidation. Honduran social justice activists and human rights defenders are calling for international observers to accompany them during the elections. 

In response to that call La Voz de los de Abajo  is organizing delegations in November 2013.  The delegations will be working in different areas of the country to help provide human rights coverage and election observation where it is most needed.  We are planning to  a 10 day and a 5 day option.

La Voz de los de Abajo has been organizing delegations in solidarity with Honduras for almost 15 years. Since the 2009 coup we have taken 7 delegations to accompany the social justice organizations and resistance across the country.
