December 2015 Honduras Coup Update (tags)
News from Honduras in December 2015. Less news but bad news. Another environmental and human rights defender kidnapped. Navy shoots Garífuna (Afro-descendent Indigenous Hondurans) killing one and wounding another and say it was an accident because they thought they are drug traffickers. A Lenca indigenous activist was assassinated. A unionist and whistleblower seeks asylum. More funding approved from US and World Bank, always more of the same, more militarisation and more 'trickle down'...

Dutch police officer, who shot Rishi Chandrikasing, acquitted/Licence to kill (tags)
The acquittal of the Dutch police officer, who shot unarmed Rishi Chandrikasing, a Dutch citizen of colour, is an absolute scandal.
