A New York City march on June 28 to celebrate the third year of resistance to the U.S.-sponsored coup in Honduras turned into a protest of the recent parliamentary coup in Paraguay as well. The International Action Center’s Committee in Solidarity with the Caribbean and Latin America, joined by activists from Honduras, Puerto Rico, Argentina and Ecuador, rallied near Times Square and then marched to the United Nations, stopping and chanting at the Honduran and Paraguayan consulates on the way. http://www.workers.org/2012/world/resist_coups_in_latin_america_0712/
While the Obama administration and its allies continue to deny the existence of a sealed US Grand Jury indictment against Julian Assange, further information has come to light about the extent of Washington’s operation against the founder of the WikiLeaks web site. Assange, who is fighting extradition to Sweden on dubious sexual assault allegations, is seeking political asylum in Ecuador and remains inside its embassy in London. He has good reason to fear that if he is extradited to Sweden, Washington will intervene, extraditing him to face a Grand Jury trial on espionage charges. http://www.wsws.org/articles/2012/jun2012/jass-j27.shtml

The two, along with smaller organizations, are looking to join forces to get laws approved that guarantee food that is safe, healthy and permanent.
