The LMC has the honor of spending the hour with Gregoria Flores, the former head of OFRANEH, the Black Fraternal Organization of Honduras. She shares with us the latest in the Garifuna struggle for social justice against the illegitimate Honduran coup government and what Black Lives Matter means to Afro-Hondurans.
The LMC kicks off 2020 by spending the hour with Steve Ellner on the US government and corporate media’s double standard between Honduras & Venezuela. Steve Ellner is a retired professor of Economics & Political Science @ Venezuela’s University of the East. He is also the associate managing editor for Latin American Perspectives.
Despite being front and center in the fight for social justice in Honduras; the Garifunas have been grossly overlooked and denied a voice in both English & Spanish-speaking corporate media. So the LMC speaks with Jose Francisco Avila about the Garifuna (Garinagu in plural) point of view of the US-supported coup government in Honduras. Jose Francisco Avila is the Managing Member of Garifuna Afro-Latino Entertainment, a.k.a. Galent.
