A DOCUMENTARY OF THE HONDURAS COUP
In the first months of the brutal coup in Honduras on June 28 last year over two million Hondurans came out on the streets in protest, largely ignored by the mainstream media.
Katia Lara and Carlos del Valle grabbed their cameras and started shooting. Soldiers were firing live rounds into the crowds on the Tegucigalpa streets. A year later Katia Lara (working in exile) has released a devastating documentary. The first Australian showing (with English subtitles) will be here in Nimbin at Djanbung Gardens on Friday 23rd of July. Warming soup and hot drinks available from 6 pm for a 7 pm screening.
(Admission will be by donation to cover costs and to send donations to the Resistance Front in Honduras)
