Witness for Peace Video: HONDURAS – “Shot in the Back”
HONDURAS – ‘SHOT IN THE BACK”
| Dear Supporter,I know your heart, like mine, breaks over and over as new reports come out of Haiti. While we continue to remember Haiti and support the rescue and rebuilding efforts, we cannot forget the other disasters ongoing in the hemisphere. Today I ask you to give some room in your heart to the tragedy in Honduras.Please take just ten short minutes to watch Shot in the Back. This newest Witness for Peace Productions video chronicles the ongoing violence facing Hondurans. Over a month after national elections that the U.S. administration claimed would restore democracy, community activists and local leaders continue to receive death threats and intimidation. We must continue to stand with human rights leaders seeking justice.
You can help keep U.S. military aid out of the hands of human rights abusers in Honduras. After you watch the video, please click here to send a message to President Obama today calling on him to continue to suspend all U.S. military aid to the brutal Honduran security forces.
Our partners are asking us to help them amplify their voices. Please take a few minutes to send this video out to anyone you know who cares about protecting human rights and democracy by forwarding this email, through Facebook, or both.
We cannot do this important work without you.
P.S. See for yourself the tragic long-term effects of the coup portrayed in the new WFP video. Join us as we return to Honduras April 3-11, 2010, to stand in solidarity with courageous leaders who continue to put their lives at risk to create a new world for themselves and their communities.
