Honduras: Post-Coup and the War against the Resistance Movements”

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Thousand Oaks Library, 1401 E. Janss @ N#23

7:00 P.M- 8:30 P.M.

Since the June, 2009 coup which overthrew Manuel Zelaya, the legally elected President of Honduras, repression of protesters through beatings, detentions and disappearances has resurfaced in Honduras.  This is sadly reminiscent of the 1980's and the “dirty wars.”  (Contra Wars)

What are the US-Honduras connections?  Why was President Zelaya kidnapped and flown to Costa Rica.  Why was another person, chosen by the military, put in his place?

Why does Honduras require the attention of US Citizens?

Join us on March 24, 2010 when our speaker, Breny Mendoza, PhD, will discuss the post-coup situation and the status of women in Honduras.

Dr. Mendoza is Associate Professor of Gender and Women's Studies at California State University, Northridge.   Dr. Mendoza has lived and worked in Europe and Latin America as well as the United States.  She has been a consultant to international organizations such as the United Nations, the European Union, GTZ-German government and others.  She is the author of three books and numerous essays and monographs.

A question and answer period will follow the presentation.

The program is free and open to the public.
