Guest Lecture: Gerado Torres's Repression and Resistance in Honduras–An Eyewitness Account
Gerado Torres is a journalist, activist, and writer.
Workers, students, and activists have held a month-long general strike in Honduras to protest repression by the government of President Porfirio Lobo. Lobo came to power following elections under the regime of Roberto Micheletti, who seized power in a violent military coup against democratically-elected President Manuel Zelaya in June 2009. In 2010, Honduras became the most dangerous country in the world for journalists. Gerardo Torres, an independent journalist and a leading member of the National Front of Popular Resistance in Honduras, will speak on campus Wednesday, April 27th, at 9:30 AM.
Sponsors: Witness for Peace, The Center for Peace and Social Justice, Peace and Social Justice Studies, and Chicano Latino Studies.
Individual donations from faculty members will be accepted.
