"Afro-Indigenous Hondurans in Resistance: U.S. Drug War, Violent Displacement, & Migration" talk by Alfredo Lopez [Academics]
06:00 PM - 07:00 PM @ Meredith 101 - Since the 2009 military coup, murders and attacks against Honduran human rights defenders have reached alarming levels. Indigenous communities, including the Garífuna, have been among those targeted. The U.S. continues to send tens of millions of dollars in Drug War aid to the Honduran police and military who have been involved in human rights abuses and to back projects that lead to displacement and migration. Alfredo López works with OFRANEH (the Black Fraternal Organization of Honduras) to protect and defend the Garífuna people’s right to their culture and ancestral land on the Caribbean coast. Lopez will discuss his people’s struggle against the negative impacts of tourism and other mega-projects and the role of state security forces in displacement and Honduran migration. This talk is free and open to the public thanks to sponsorship by Witness for Peace and The Principal Financial Group Center for Global Citizenship at Drake.
