In cities across the U.S. and Honduras on June 28, a National Day of Action will commemorate three years of resistance to the coup that removed Manuel Zelaya Rosales from the presidency of Honduras. These actions come at a moment when Washington has engineered another coup against a legally elected leader in Paraguay, Fernando Lugo. Lucy Pagoada, delegate to the Honduran Resistance (Front for National Resistance of the People, FNRP) and member of the Libre (Liberty and Refoundation) Party, spoke with Workers World about these events.
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) – More than 1,000 Haitians marched through the Caribbean nation‘s capital Monday to protest a reported plan to destroy their hillside shanties for a flood-control project before they find better, more permanent dwellings in the wake of a devastating earthquake. Police fired tear gas in an attempt to control the protesters, some of whom threw rocks. The demonstrators snaked through the Port-au-Prince metropolitan area chanting threats to burn down the relatively affluent district where the shanties sit if the authorities flatten their homes.
