January 2019 Honduras coup update (tags)
This January 2019 in Honduras. The fraudulently imposed government of JOH is now one year old.

This year people remember this well, but people are no less enraged and there were actions small and big around the country and there was repression and gunshots were used too against people. This month there were also attacks against campesinos, territory and environment defenders, and lots of attacks against migrants and workers. A few people were assassinated. Read on for details.

Similarly, farmers have faced evictions and persecution. Read on to find out more sydneywithhonduras.wordpress.com/2018/11/16/october-2018-honduras-coup-update/

The Migrant Condition (tags)
When I was recently named chairman of the Committee on Overseas Workers’ Affairs of the House of Representatives of the Philippines, I was approached by members of the press for my views on migrant labor.
