Edwin Espinal on day of arrest, January 19 2018

From Alliance for Global Justice 

Go to this link for a two-step process, to contact Honduran authorities and US and Canadian representatives.

26 political prisoners in Honduras remain detained in the context of the 2017 electoral crisis and the pro-democracy protests to denounce the electoral fraud. The pre-trial detentions are in horrific conditions in maximum security, military-run prisons. All could spend up to 2.5 years in jail before being sentenced by a judge. Alliance for Global Justice demands that Honduran authorities immediately release all of the political prisoners and drop all charges against them!

For recognizing, supporting, and financing the current Juan Orlando Hernandez regime, US and Canadian authorities must also be held accountable, particularly for their involvement in supporting a regime that systematically violates basic human rights and the rule of law. Canada and the US are part of the problem. With your support we can achieve freedom for long-time activist Edwin Espinal and all the other political prisoners, and ensure that the voice of resistance of the Honduran people is not silenced! Add your voice to the global day of action and demand freedom for the political prisoners in Honduras!
