From September 6-16, a La Voz de los de Abajo delegation of 9 human rights activists, including the Gay Liberation Network's Andy Thayer, visited Honduras.

We met with campesino and indigenous communities and organizations, with leaders of the Sexual Diversity (LGBT) Movement, the resistance political party LIBRE, independent radio stations and Honduran human rights organizations.

We heard the stories of the hundreds of political assassinations and violent attacks on people since the coup in June 2009.

We saw with our own eyes the effects of the militarization and use of paramilitaries when our delegation was directly threatened by private paramilitary.

Everywhere we went the people asked us to make the United States government stop supporting the Honduran military, police, paramilitary and government. Let us share this reality with you and talk about what we can do here so the Hondurans can refound their country.
