Free Cuban Five A must-see Significant world news Urgent care for Peltier Award-winner

Standing firm for Honduras

The coup d’etat carried out against the legally elected president of Honduras on June 28 is meeting with worldwide resistance which is as strong as it is broad. Not a single country around the world is supporting it. The United Nations General Assembly and the Organization of American States have declared emphatically that they do not recognize the coup regime.

Against the background of the bloodiest century in human history and this decade of war, genocide, boycotts, and threats and counter threats, thanks in large measure to the Bush administration and, in a larger sense, our own imperialism, humanity is seeking a new world order in which peace and justice are its organizing principles.
