SEIU 503 March 4-7 Honduras Events In 4 Oregon Cities

The SEIU 503 Latin@ Caucus and the Lavender Caucus join together to present "Eyewitness Honduras: Attacks On The LGBT Community and Unions".  The keynote speaker will be Chuck Kaufman the Co-Director of the Alliance For Global Justice.  He was most recently in Honduras in November with a Human Rights Accompaniment.

Since the U.S. supported coup in 2009 there have been attacks and executions throughout Honduras.  Over 80 members of the LGBTQ Community have been killed.  There have also been attacks on unions and two human rights activists have been killed.  In addition the rise of campesinos, the indigenous communities, students, and youth are joining together to oppose the coup. Three new U.S. bases are currently being built and the increasing troop deployments and CIA assignments are ominous signs.  Come join the discussion in Portland, Corvallis, Salem and Eugene.
