For the month of June, Freedom Flicks is proud to invite you to a screening of the moving documentary, Resistencia: the Fight for the Aguan Valley by Jesse Freeston that we are cosponsoring with Departamento 19 – NY.
Resistencia captures the remarkable and inspiring story of the Aguan Valley campesino (farmer worker) movement, following the military coup that overthrew former Honduran President Manuel Zelaya.
Under the constant threat of physical violence, village raids and disappearances, the courageous campesino community of the Aguan Valley organize to take back the land from corrupt land barons and fight for their basic human rights.
A beautiful film, Resistencia in addition to highlighting the lack of accountability and human rights violations perpetrated by the Honduran government against their own people, reminds us the role US actors play in undermining democratic resistance abroad.
Please check out the ongoing work CCR has been doing to raise awareness and combat human rights violations in Honduras. We hope to see you there!
If you’re unable to attend the screening on the 20th, there will be another opportunity on Sunday, June 28th in Jersey City. Details to follow.
