Graphic Coup

by
Abby Zimet

 

Highlighting a century of U.S. imperialism in Central America, two
leftist "comix journalists" from Stanford have released "The Honduran
Coup, A Graphic History."  Dan Archer and Nikil Saval trace the
overthrow of Manuel Zelaya to the 1900s domination of fruit giants Dole
and Chiquita, and through years of U.S.-sponsored rightwing rule. More on
the comic here. A stunning photo essay on Honduras by Mimundo.org here.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
