The US Role in MIGRATION
December 3 - 12, 2019
In recent years the specter of “migrant caravans” have figured prominently in United States political discourse. This delegation focuses on mass migration as part of the collective struggle against the social, political, and economic crises which have plagued Honduras since the US supported coup in 2009. Delegates will explore the connections between outward migration and US promotion of militarization and corruption.
Delegates will engage with a wide range of Honduran communities who have experienced the most serious effects of these policies including Indigenous groups, rural communities, feminist activists, community radio leaders, and other.
Our goal is to learn both why people choose to undertake the often brutal migration north but also how mass exodus undermines and destabilizes daily life in Honduras and exacerbates political, social, economic and environmental crises and to share what we have learned with our communities and policy makers on our return.
