Christine Wade, Professor of Political Science and International Studies and author of Captured Peace: Elites and Peacebuilding in El Salvador, is interviewed in this Truthout story about Honduran forces attacking civilian environmental activists who were protesting a hydroelectric project in Pajuiles, Honduras. Wade notes that Honduran security forces trained and backed by the U.S., like the COBRAS and TIGRES special forces, have been “implicated in human rights violations” over the last few decades, and unless the U.S. stops supporting these groups, human rights abuses at their hands will continue.
