DANA FRANK
Just back from Honduras, Frank is professor of history at the University of California at Santa Cruz specializing in Honduran social movements and political history.

She said today: “In restoring aid to Honduras and recognizing the fraudulent government of Porfirio ‘Pepe’ Lobo Sosa, the United States is continuing to shore up the coup regime that has violently taken over Honduras since June 28, and which continues to repress the nonviolent Resistance with over 250 violations of human rights since Lobo’s inaugural, including three assassinations of Resistance members.”

Frank met with 25 members of the Resistance while in Honduras. Her books include Bananera: Women Transforming the Banana Unions of Latin America.
