Grassroots Organizers in Honduras With a Lesson For America

Carlos Porfirio Armijo is the National Secretary for Education and Training at the Centro Nacional de Trabajadores del Campo CNTC (National Center of Rural Workers). The group provides literacy services for united and also bills itself as a “movement...in permanent resistance to the land-grabbing corporate and private agribusiness and mega-project destruction of land and water.” Carlos joins Worldview to discuss his work as an indigenous community organizer in Honduras and the struggles he faces while fighting for social justice. Translating for Armijo is Matt Ginsberg-Jaeckle, an interpreter/translator, community organizer, and member with the Chicago-based human rights group, La Voz de Los de Abajo.
