Deportations & Forced Migrations in Honduras Talk Wed Oct 18th

 

 

 

 

 

Deportations & Forced Migrations:
The View from Honduras
with Neesa
Medina
WEDNESDAY Oct 18th 7PM

Heyward Street United Methodist Church, Fellowship Hall
2501 Heyward St. Columbia, SC

Neesa Medina speaks on the impact of US foreign policy on Honduras. Since the 2009 military coup in Honduras, murders and attacks against Honduran human rights defenders have reached alarming levels. The U.S. continues to send tens of millions of dollars in aid to the Honduran police and military who have been involved in human rights abuses. In addition, the U.S. backs neoliberal projects that lead to displacement and migration.

Neesa Medina is a Honduran feminist sociologist and she currently works as a Security and Gender Analyst at CDM (Centro Derechos Mujeres/Center for Women’s Rights) in Honduras. At the national level, she has been active on the issues of violence against women, reproductive rights and women’s rights. She helped draft and present the Alternative Report to the United Nations Committee for the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) and has testified as an expert on more than a dozen cases of women seeking asylum in the United States.

FREE and open to the public. Donations accepted in support of the speaking tour.

Civil rights elder preserves S.C. history

Cecil Williams stands in front of his home studio in Orangeburg, S.C. in October, 2016.

In elementary school, Cecil Williams photographed lawyer Thurgood Marshall’s early efforts to desegregate public schools. In high school, he documented the ‘60s civil rights sit-ins. As a young adult, he covered Harvey Gantt’s 1964 desegregation of Clemson University, the aftermath of the 1968 Orangeburg Massacre and the 1969 strike by Charleston hospital workers.

“The saying goes: A picture is worth a thousand words. But no. I say a good picture, a storytelling picture is worth a thousand words,” said Cecil Williams, a 78-year-old civil rights photographer.
