Elections in Iraq * Clinton in Honduras

WASHINGTON - March 5 -

RAED JARRAR
Jarrar is an Iraqi-born political analyst who just came back from a visit to Iraq. A senior fellow with Peace Action, Jarrar has written several articles since his return to the U.S.: "The Iraq Withdrawal: Obama vs. the Pentagon," "Sliding Backwards on Iraq?" and "A Military Coup in Iraq?" available at his web page.


DANA FRANK
Just back from Honduras, Frank is professor of history at the University of California at Santa Cruz specializing in Honduran social movements and political history.

She said today: "In restoring aid to Honduras and recognizing the fraudulent government of Porfirio 'Pepe' Lobo Sosa, the United States is continuing to shore up the coup regime that has violently taken over Honduras since June 28, and which continues to repress the nonviolent Resistance with over 250 violations of human rights since Lobo's inaugural, including three assassinations of Resistance members."

Frank met with 25 members of the Resistance while in Honduras. Her books include Bananera: Women Transforming the Banana Unions of Latin America.
