November 2017 Honduras Pre-Coup Repeat Update: Part 1 (tags)
You might have heard about the world cup play off. How Australia won against Honduras in the middle of November this year as the privileged Australian soccer team bought its way out of jetlag with a private plane that got the players to Sydney many hours before the Honduran players arrived on economic flights. Whatever one makes of that, less than two weeks later, Honduras had an election, on 26 November 2017, which eventuated in another electoral fraude, a widespread grassroots insurrection and what is so far, another coup and a lot of repression. What comes below will be a part one – before the election – November news update, as what goes on 'normally' is extreme already and needs to be known. And part two will be an election/fraude/insurrection focus and the corresponding abuses and killings inflicted, it will be an update that will come shortly, covering 26 November 2017, to about mid December 2017.
