PADRE MELO, Honduran Human Rights Leader Speaking Tuesday, Oct. 15, 7 PM

Melo will speak on the topic, “The Price of Truth:Human Rights Since the Honduran Coup” at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of South County - Lily Pads - 27 North Road, Peace Dale, RI.

Honduras is a country rife with impunity and flagrant human rights violations. Padre Melo’s life is repeatedly threatened. Nevertheless, he continues to direct both Radio Progreso and The Team for Reflection, Research and Communication, advocating and acting for nonviolence, human rights, freedom of expression, and independent analysis.  His presentation will illuminate the struggles and successes of building a fair and inclusive society in a country where, by some estimates, 50 journalists & social commentators have been killed since June of 2009.

This event is sponsored by Witness for Peace New England.
