Today we were human rights observers for the Caravan for Soberania Vial: Caravan for Freedom of Movement, challenging the privatization of roads and public resources in Honduras.  We got to see other forms of “walls”- obstructing people’s freedom of movement within the country of Honduras:  The construction of tolls – on the primary highways of the country, when there are no alternative roads available; further extracting the few resources people have.. Here is something  we heard:  “If people had good healthcare, good education, good agricultural policies, and public services and investments in the quality of life, instead of neglect and corruption, they wouldn’t have to migrate.”   Next post, we will explain more about the nonviolent civil resistance to “not pay the tolls” (no al peaje!) … but for now here’s a glimpse.dsc00285
