The people of Honduras have much in common with the rest of Latin America and the Caribbean: a culture rich in art, music and food in a land with warm, loving people. Like many other nations in the Americas, Honduras also suffers from extreme violence against the working class, widespread corruption from a greedy oligarchy, […]


IFCO /Pastors for Peace resists IRS attacks

By January 18, 2014

Once again the U.S. government is targeting the solidarity movement with harassment in an attempt to silence the progressive movement in this country. IFCO (the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization)/Pastors for Peace says it has become the victim of “political persecution and an aggressive harassment campaign by the IRS.” At the root of this recent […]

Teresa Gutierrez.

  From a WWP Conference talk by Secretariat member Teresa Gutierrez. I had a dilemma in preparing this talk. What should I focus on? Should it be the migrant struggle? Or another issue I care deeply about, global warming? As we witness heart-wrenching devastation in the Philippines, how can you not think about the climate […]

May 1 Coalition contingent.

While many powerful economic and political issues are currently driving immigration policy in this country, an outstanding one is racism.

Cuba, si! U.S. racism, no!

By July 24, 2013

As the Black community and others reel still from the unjust and racist verdict allowing a killer to walk free, as George Zimmerman did July 13 in Sanford, Fla., the people of this country would do well to look at the revolutionary island of Cuba for inspiration. Socialist Cuba shows us the potential and possibility […]
