Emergency Ecumenical Delegation bears witness to repression and human rights crisis in Honduras

An Emergency Ecumenical Delegation including religious leaders representing 8 denominations from the United States and Canada traveled to Honduras from January 24 -30, 2018. The emergency delegation was organized in response to a call from Fr. Melo, SJ of Radio Progreso, to the international community to bear witness to the post-electoral crisis in Honduras. The delegation was received in San Pedro Sula by representatives from Honduran communities who held a vigil in the airport lobby to commemorate those killed in the post electoral violence to date. During their week stay, the delegation heard testimony from victims and family members of state sponsored repression, witnessed repression of peaceful demonstrations by U.S. funded Honduran state security forces, participated in a Way of the Cross, a candlelight vigil in front of the U.S. Embassy in Tegucigalpa and met with the U.S. Embassy Chargé d'Affaires, Heidi Fulton, to present the delegations concerns regarding U.S. policy, the human rights crisis and rupture of democratic process.
