Honduras: The Reforms, the Coup, and the Aftermath- Speech by Nectali Rodezno Izaguirre

Nectali Rodezno Izaguirre is the Coordinator of the Honduran National Lawyers’ Front Against the Coup.  As a human rights lawyer and nonviolent activist, Nectali recruits lawyers from across Honduras, helping them to provide pro bono representation to those who have been illegally detained, charged, or tortured by Honduras’ de facto government.
Witness for Peace has coordinated a series of speaking engagements, where Nectali addresses audiences in a number of U.S. cities.  In a recent speech, Nectali spoke of the events leading up to the coup, the overthrow of the democratically elected government, and the efforts of the Honduran people to restore a legitimate democracy.
Here is a video, below, of a portion of Nectali’s November 14 speech.  In this excerpt, he discusses the reforms that were in place or were in development, in the period preceding the coup.  The speech is in Spanish, with an English translation.  The full speech can be viewed, in two parts on YouTube.  For Part 1, click here.  For Part 2, click here.
