I am an immigrant who came fleeing from violence, corruption and a dictatorial regime in Honduras. One result of the dictatorship in Honduras is the prohibition of freedom of expression; over 70 journalists have been killed in the last 10 years since the coup d’etat.
Worldview gives voice to those who have historically been silenced. For my part, I thank Worldview for informing and creating debate on matters of interest for Latin America, but above all the space to reflect on the role of the United States in the development of exclusionary economic policies that have resulted in a tremendous concentration of power among corrupt individuals, especially in Honduras. Worldview is one of the few news outlets in the US that covers the hard reality of Central America.
As a listener for and contributor to WBEZ, I implore that you keep true international journalism alive by keeping Worldview on the air; it is vital for the democratization of information and knowledge.
