HeadlineMay 31, 2019

Meanwhile, protests are continuing in Honduras against plans by President Hernández to privatize healthcare, pensions and education. Thousands of teachers, medical workers and students flooded the streets of Tegucigalpa again on Thursday, closing the capital city’s airport and drawing tear gas from police.

Protester: “I am here because people are suffering; because I have students who don’t have anything to eat, who come to class hungry. That’s why I’m here.”
