HONDURAS: LABORATORY FOR RUTHLESS GLOBALIZATION
Alliance for Global Justice Bi-National Delegation, July 22-August 1, 2015: Honduras and Nicaragua are neighbors and among the most impoverished countries in Latin America. They share the same climate and much of the same history from colonial times to independence. One country had a revolution in 1979 which today is being further developed, particularly through ALBA, the cooperative trade alliance. The other country had no revolution but its membership in ALBA was one factor in a US-backed military coup in 2009. The negative effects of that coup are evident.
