Protesters Set Fire Outside U.S. Embassy in Honduras

HeadlineJun 03, 2019

In Honduras, protesters set fire to the front of the U.S. Embassy in the capital Tegucigalpa Friday. No injuries were reported. The fire came amid massive protests against plans by President Juan Orlando Hernández to privatize healthcare, pensions and education. This is protester and activist Wilfredo Méndez.

Wilfredo Méndez: “Hopefully the U.S. congressmen and senators who are Democrats can present this message with force to the Trump administration, who is supporting this dictator, Juan Orlando Hernández. This is a clear expression of repudiation to a U.S. administration that has supported a dictatorship and turned its back on the Honduran people.”
