Canadian groups want Edwin Espinal freed from Honduran jail 21.4.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Brent Patterson Edwin Espinal is a human rights defender who has been held at the high-security, military-run La Tolva prison in Honduras without trial since his arrest on January 19, 2018. Orillia Matters reports, "Since 2009, Espinal has played an active role in advocating for human rights in Honduras." 2009 is key because it was on June 28 of that year that the Honduran army ousted then-president Manuel Zelaya and sent him into exile. Tyler Shipley, the author of Ottawa and Empire: Canada and the Military Coup in Honduras, has commented, "The primary agents of the coup in Honduras were the oligarchy (a group of super rich families that dominate Honduran economic and political life) and the military." He adds, "These forces wanted to stop the program of social reform undertaken by the Zelaya government (2006–2009) which was responding to an organized popular movement demanding change." And Yves Engler has highlighted, "A number of major Canadian corporations, notably Gildan and Goldcorp, were unhappy ...

When I stopped to take a  picture , a soldier wearing a camouflage helmet emerged from the top of the Stryker, a 19-ton, eight-wheeled combat vehicle that was regularly used in military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. He looked my way and I offered a ...

Sending Troops to the Border Will Cause More Migrant Deaths 11.4.2018 Truthout - All Articles
Late Friday night, Defense Secretary James Mattis approved the deployment of up to 4,000 troops to the US-Mexico border. The order, which came after Trump called for an increase in troops in response to a caravan of refugees seeking asylum, is not the first time the National Guard has been sent to the border. However, many people living in the borderlands believe the action escalates an already-weaponized war zone, and at a time when the US is seeing the lowest border crossing numbers since 1971. Crosses memoralize those killed at a section of fence along the US / Mexico border. (Photo: Daniel Lobo ; Edited: LW / TO) This article was published by TalkPoverty.org.
