AfGJ Files Complaint Over US Honduras Embassy Endangerment of US Citizens http://quotha.net/node/1901
The following complaint was submitted through the office of Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) by AfGJ National Co-Coordinator Chuck Kaufman after he returned from leading a delegation to Honduras that had a dangerous stand-off with Honduran Police. I recently returned to my home in Tucson after leading a delegation to Honduras June 27-July 5, 2011. On the morning of July 1, 2011, 15-members or our delegation of US citizens were in an hours long stand-off with heavily armed Honduran police who were attempting to conduct an eviction of a peasant community without a judge present or any eviction order, as required by Honduran law.
During our 3-1/2 hour stand-off, snipers in the tree line had high caliber rifles aimed at us and some of the police we were negotiating with had drawn pistols or were making threatening motions with what we believe were Galil rifles. During the entire time we were trying to call the US embassy in Tegucigalpa. We were unable to get a live human being on any of the emergency or any other phones at the embassy. We were unable even to leave a message as all the voicemail boxes at the numbers we could reach were full.
