Last weekend, Honduras’ powerful security minister and foreign minister resigned, signifying a major shakeup in President Porfirio Lobo’s two-year-old administration. We discuss the ramifications and delve into new Wikileaks revelations about U.S. involvement in Honduras with Dana Frank, professor of history at UC-Santa Cruz and a contributor to The Nation. In the next installment of Ground Shifters: Stories of Women Changing Unseen Worlds, reporter Jean Friedman-Rudovsky visits a singular women’s prison in La Paz, Bolivia. More than just a jail, it’s a miniature city of sorts — with shops, businesses, a school and even a union. Then, on Global Notes, we talk to Brian Keigher from World Music Festival Chicago about this year’s lineup, packing in more than 50 acts in 22 venues around the city.
