Honduras has recently been named the most dangerous place in the world to speak out against the government. Human rights activists, journalists, and members of the LGBT community have been under constant threat in Honduras since the 2009 military coup ousted democratically elected President Manuel Zelaya. Many have been killed, their murders left unprosecuted. Many others receive regular death threats. These human rights abuses are serious, but millions of dollars from the U.S. continue to be sent to Honduras for police and military aid.
Why does the US continue to support such an abusive government, one that is killing its own citizens who speak out against it?
