This is the full 3-15-10 episode of the Labor Express Radio program.

On this week’s episode on Labor Express we take a look at the deteriorating human rights situation in Honduras since the November election which sought to legitimatize the coup regime established last June. The weekend before last Fr. Ismael “Melo” Moreno visited Chicago from Honduras. Fr. Melo is a Jesuit priest, the Director of Radio Progreso and the Director of the Jesuit Social Analysis Center in Honduras. Fr. Melo has been an outspoken critic of the military coup and the subsequent installation of the administration of Porfirio “Pepe” Lobo. He and his staff have received numerous death threats since the coup and Radio Progreso was shut down and raided by the military on two occasions. I was able to interview Fr. Melo during his brief visit and will air that interview on tonight’s program.

Editors Note: I failed to mention on the episode that translation was provided by Victoria Cervantes of La Voz de los de Abajo. Labor Express apologies for this oversight and wants to thank Ms. Cervantes for her assistance.

Will also hear about plans for anti-war protests here in Chicago on the 18th and in Washington D.C. on the 20th to mark the 7th anniversary of the war in Iraq, from anti-war organizer Joleen Kirschenman.
