Session 1 is about Where are we now?  The elections of November 28, 2021, became a historic event for Honduras.  Xiomara Castro’s electoral victory is another step in the popular resistance that preceded the 2009 coup. This victory resulted from the work of a coalition that spanned the political spectrum in Honduras to oppose the re-election of newly-displaced dictator, Juan Orlando Hernandez. It is also because of the countless sacrifices of criminalized and murdered activists that the people of Honduras can continue to resist the harmful impacts of the U.S. and Canada-backed neoliberal model (global free-market capitalist).  Join this webinar to gain a deeper understanding of the current political landscape in Honduras after the election of President Xiomara Castro, the new foreign policy interests of the U.S. and Canada towards Honduras, and what it means now to build solidarity with the people of Honduras. U.S.-Honduran solidarity. Register at
