CLASA Event: Mary Anne Perrone Lecture

Description: Mary Anne Perrone (SOA Watch), “Report from an Interfaith Delegation to Honduras: The Honduran elections and a Crisis of Legitimacy.” An interfaith group, including members from the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas Justice Team, SHARE Foundation and Friendship Office/Honduras Accompaniment Project has put together a team of witnesses who will go to Honduras, responding to the call of Padre Melo (Ismael Moreno, S.J., our previous CLASA speaker who was very close to Fr. Carney, and who directs a Jesuit-run radio station in Progreso, Honduras). There have been threats to Padre Melo’s life, and the radio station has been vandalized. Mary Anne will report on the findings of the delegation’s visit, including sharing testimonies of witnesses and other findings.
