Campesino Resistance in Honduras

Chavelo’s voice was quiet but unwavering as [he] expressed his gratitude that we traveled all the way from the U.S. and Canada with the human rights and solidarity organization Rights Action to hear his story. […] Chavelo recounted briefly how he ended up in the prison, emphatically stating that, “I have been in prison for five years for a crime I did not commit. I am not a thief or an assassin. I never took anything from anyone.”
