Yesterday we received a request from social movements in Honduras for international accompaniment during this critical period. Starting next week, there are no international delegations scheduled to be in Honduras.
Last week end, when there was a space between delegations, a social movement leader was murdered with signs of torture, and a bomb exploded at a union headquarters in Tegucigalpa which is part of the National Front Against the Coup.
Social movement leaders are vulnerable and have asked for an emergency delegation to arrive this Sunday, to maintain an international presence and witness to events on the ground. The Quest for Peace is committed to respond to this request.
Please consider participating in this Emergency Delegation to Honduras from August 2-9th. We are still working out details, but our partners on the ground in Honduras have begun planning, and will guarantee a schedule including meetings and activities as events unfold. The cost of the trip will include round trip airfare plus $700 for in country expenses. If you can join us in Honduras, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your solidarity!
