WE ARE NOT AFRAID - HONDURAS UNDER THE MILITARY COUP
BREAKFAST, FILM, DISCUSSION

Saturday, November 6 at 9am

Members $12 / Public $15

On June 28, 2009 there was a military coup in the Republic of Honduras. On June 30, the
General Assembly of the United Nations condemned the Coup d'etat by the defacto
regime of Roberto Micheletti that overthrew the democratically elected President, Jose Manuel
Zelaya. The UN demanded the immediate and unconditional restoration of the legitimate and
constitutional Government and resolved to call all Governments of the world not to recognize
any other Government other than that of Jose Manuel Zelaya. However, elections
organized by the regime of Roberto Micheletti brought to power Porfirio Lobo. Those
elections were not recognized by the international community. The electoral campaign took
place during a period of curfews, of political assassinations, and of continuous harassment
of the communications media. This documentary film from the director Katia Lara, shows us
the reality of the coup d'etat, and the ensuing repression. But it principally stresses the important popular reaction to the coup
manifested in the creation of the Front of National Resistance. This film is also an irrefutable and definitive testimony of the violation
of human rights that took place in Honduras and a testament to the courage of the people who continue to oppose it.
Guest Speaker: Lucy Pagoada-Quesada, who was born and raised in Honduras. She currently teaches high school Spanish in the NY
City Dept of Education, and is a coordinator of the committee HondurasUSAresistencia whose goals are to reveal the truth of what
went on and is still going on in Honduras. She is a member of the Honduran Solidarity National Network which works with
Hondurans around the USA. She is also a member of the May First Coalition for workers and immigrants rights.
