Most Hondurans, and the international community at large, consider the Honduran presidential elections of November 2017 fraudulent; the US does not. Juan Orlando Hernandez is not only not recognized as a legitimate president by the people; due to the unconstitutionality of his bid for reelection, he is considered a dictator. Emerging from the people, the #FueraJOH movement has led to creative organizing strategies and tactics, both nationally and internationally. Nine 9 years after the coup d’état that destroyed constitutional order in Honduras, a new generation is emerging to challenge the JOH Nationalist Party regime and its continuity of bad government. This talk will focus on the responses to tyranny in Honduras and how the international community can engage to support Hondurans, both in Honduras and those in the migrant trail.
