On June 28th, 2019, 10 years will have passed since the 2009 coup. For 10 years, Hondurans have maintained a powerful resistance against neoliberalism, militarism and corruption, and continue to demand a real democracy, sovereignty and a “refounding” of the country. The resistance against the US and Canada-backed regime in Honduras continues to inspire others. Today, teachers and health care workers have ignited the latest upsurge as they refused to accept the @JuanOrlandoH regime’s dismantling of public education and health care. The struggle is far from over, stand up in solidarity with Hondurans!
