Ilse Velasquez was an advocate of human rights and teachers' union leader

The People's National Resistance Front declares Porfirio Lobo Sosa is responsable.

March 18, 2011. The 59 years old teacher lost conscience on the street after a tear gas canister fired by the riots police struck her forehead. The cloud of toxic smoke that surrounded her severely affected the respiratory system. Moments after, Mrs. Velasquez was hit by a car that caused severe internal bruising. Although Ilse was assisted by other teachers and demonstrators that took her to a nearby hospital, she died after being cared for in an emergency room. The existing video captured by security cameras shows the car driver losing control due to tear gas exposure.

The Committee of Relatives of Detained and Disappeared in Honduras, COFADEH, organization that Velasquez was a member of for being the sister of Manfredo Velásquez, himself a disappeared, issued a statement to mourn her death, "Ilse and her family were tireless fighters for truth and justice during the enforced disappearances in our country under the doctrine of national security in the eighties. The disappearance of Manfredo Velásquez was the first case of human rights violations known to the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, in which the State of Honduras was convicted. To present days it has not complied with the resolution to investigate and punish those responsible.

The People's National Resistance Front, which coordinated the demonstrations against the policies of de facto regime, reported through its coordinator Juan Barahona repression against the working class and blamed the leader of the regime for the murder of the teacher.

Witnesses reported seeing bottles of alcohol used by police and military before attacking demonstrators.

Agrarian Crisis as the Crisis of Small Property Ownership in Globalizing Capitalism

by Raju J DasThe topic of agrarian crisis is everywhere.  What does it mean, though?We know what 'agrarian' means.  It refers to agriculture and its social relations.What does 'crisis' mean?  It means a problem (or a set of problems).  It is not an ordinary problem, however.  It is a big problem.  It is a problem that must be addressed immediately.


Honduras Votes

Dana Frank | November 6, 2013Four years after a military coup deposed democratically elected President Manuel Zelaya, Hondurans have a chance with their November 24 elections to restore a measure of democracy. The stakes are high: either Honduras will plunge deeper into its vortex of violence and repression, or it will have a fighting chance to begin to re-establish the rule of law and construct a viable economy. On a broader level, the Honduran elections will test whether Latin America’s transition to democracy and social justice will be permitted to advance—in what Secretary of State John Kerry still refers to as “our backyard.”
