Honduran human rights activist responds to
Canada-US backed truthiness commission
by Anthony Fenton                 
Bertha Oliva, Director of the Honduran Committee of the Families of the Detained and Disappeared (COFADEH), writes:

"Now the Lobo government, in an effort to regain international legitimacy, is creating a Truth Commission, an initiative that is being applauded by the United States [and Canadian*] administration[s]. Yet COFADEH and the other Honduran human rights defenders who have spent much of our lives calling for a truth commission to investigate past political violence are not applauding. We are protesting."
