In an August 12 post, I passed along an alert from the organization, Medical Cooperation with Cuba or MEDICC, regarding a report that golpistas had notified the only Garifuna community hospital in Honduras that it would be taken over by the Micheletti regime and all current employees would be fired.

The San Francisco Bay View newspaper is reporting that MEDICC has issued another alert suggesting that the takeover of the hospital is imminent, but the alert includes measures you can take now to help stop such an injustice.

Directly after the alert, San Francisco Bayview has published an article by Willie Thompson, a friend of mine from the Haiti solidarity movement, which provides excellent background on the plight of the Garifuna and how this de facto regime is a serious threat to the Garifuna people.  I encourage you to check it out.

And, if you are unfamiliar with the San Francisco Bayview newspaper, you should check it out.  It features stories you won’t see elsewhere with special emphasis on coverage of the peoples’ struggles .
