Prof. Noam Chomsky Speaking on the Crisis in Honduras, Tuesday, Dec. 15
04 Dec 2009
MIT - Lecture Hall 26-100 - 6:30 PM

On November 29th, elections were carried out amidst defacto military rule in Honduras. For four and a half months the country has suffered media censorship, widespread human rights violations, brutality against women and the LGBT community, and targeted assasinations of resistance leaders. Though Barack Obama initially condemned the coup which ousted democratically-elected president Manuel Zelaya, his administration expressed no qualms with these abuses, and has recognized the farce elections.

On November 29th, elections were carried out amidst defacto military rule in Honduras. For four and a half months the country has suffered media censorship, widespread human rights violations, brutality against women and the LGBT community, and targeted assasinations of resistance leaders. Though Barack Obama initially condemned the coup which ousted democratically-elected president Manuel Zelaya, his administration expressed no qualms with these abuses, and has recognized the farce elections.

With this we witness the inauguration of a new model: overturn the leftist and replace him with the oligarch. So long as elections are realized, regardless of the conditions, the US will support you. This is a betrayal of the sovereignty of Latin American, proving to the world that the superpower, even under Obama, will support military coups and mass brutality so long as they bolster US interests.

Professor Noam Chomsky, veteran commentator on Latin American affairs, will discuss the coup in Honduras, and what it means to the hemisphere. Join us in this evening of solidarity with the Honduran resistance.
