    The Hub: The world’s first participatory media site for human rights 

     

    We stumbled across this interesting site & wanted to share …The Hub: The world’s first participatory media site for human rights

    the hub_image

    Honduran President Manuel Zelaya was deposed in a coup in June. Zelaya returned to Honduras on Monday, ending… almost three months of exile and bringing the world’s attention to his cause again.

    This video is from July reports from Nicaragua/Honduras border crossing, where the body of a Zelaya supporter was found badly beaten. Fingers are being pointed at the police forces – and human rights are being questioned. What do you think?

    “The military and the police must respect human rights and ensure any use of force is proportionate during law enforcement operations and in accordance with UN standards. People must be allowed to protest peacefully without fear of being harmed or being wrongfully imprisoned.” – Kerrie Howard, Amnesty International

    Honduras: Thursday, July 9, 2009 

    Posted by U.S.Embassy in Tegucigalpa, Continued Political Unrest in Honduras, 10th Update, Thursday, July 9, 2009

    To: All American Citizens
    From: American Citizens Services Unit, Consular Section

    Due to the current unstable political and security situation, the U.S. Embassy in Tegucigalpa recommends American citizens defer all non-essential travel to Honduras until further notice.

    The Embassy advises American citizens residing in and visiting Honduras to restrict travel to within city limits. The government of Honduras has imposed a curfew effective until further notice from 2300 (11:00 p.m.) to 0400 (4:00 a.m.). The Embassy strongly recommends American citizens abide by this curfew.

    The Embassy has advised its staff to restrict travel to within city limits. Demonstrations both against and in favor of the new regime are expected to continue in the coming days throughout the country, including in Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula, El Progreso and Roatan. Demonstrations to date have been generally non-violent and there have been few reports of injuries.

    As ideologues from inside and outside Honduras weigh in on the fate of the country’s ousted leader, Worldfocus contributing blogger Peter Eisner hopes that one group — the millions of desperately poor people in Honduras — will somehow benefit in the end.

    Posted by WorldFocus.org, Tuesday, July 7, 2009

    In Washington on Tuesday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met with the deposed president of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya. She announced that the president of Costa Rica will serve as a mediator in the Honduran political crisis, adding that both Zelaya and the man who replaced him, Roberto Micheletti, had agreed to the mediation. Clinton also called on all parties to refrain from further violence.

    Christopher Sabatini, the senior director of policy at the Council of the Americas, joins Martin Savidge to discuss the political situation in Honduras and the role of the U.S

    Honduras: Monday, July 6, 2009 

    Posted by Global Brigades, office of the CEO at 1:30 p.m. MT, Mon., July 6, 2009

    An update on Honduras: Our leadership team and staff have remained in Tegucigalpa and are closely monitoring the political and social climate.  We report that peace and order is experienced throughout the majority of Tegucigalpa and we have yet to see protests near our compound (outside of the city) or the communities we serve.  We hope that the protests yesterday were the climax of the conflict and normalcy will come soon.  We are disappointed with the current media sensationalism, specifically referencing the upheaval as a military coup when the decisions were made unanimously and democratically by congress and their supreme court (comprised of members of Zelaya’s own party).  We promise you a report from the ground that is as honest and to the point as possible, without any media hype.  For your reference, the sentiment of the overwhelming majority, 70% of Hondurans are in support of the new leadership.

    Poor communities in Honduras are now, more than ever, in need of empowerment and our assistance. That said, the safety of our volunteers remains our number one priority.  We will be taking each brigade on a case-by-case basis on guidance of the U.S. Embassy.  We are proceeding as planned for August brigades but have all plans in motion should we need to postpone the trip or move it to Panama.  In the meantime, we encourage all to please stay the course and send positive energy for a peaceful and quick resolution.

    Earlier in the week, there was a violent clash at the airport in Tegucigalpa when a plane carrying Zelaya was turned away. Competing protests have rocked the capital city.
