International faith leaders are in Honduras for a week-long pilgrimage. The interfaith delegation includes Jewish, Buddhist and Christian leaders. They “will meet with organizations working and advocating for the rights of migrants and explore factors that are forcing migrants to flee, including violence; environmental degradation; and the ongoing effects of the 2009 coup which opened the doors for drug cartels, organized crime, corrupt security forces, and near total impunity for human rights violations. The delegation will meet with victims of the government-sponsored repression following the unconstitutional, fraudulent election of November 2017 and meet with communities fighting against displacement caused by extractive industries and those impacted by human rights violations.”
As we go, we carry with us the suffering ones in Christchurch, New Zealand and offer our love to all who are struggling this day.
