Briefly: Torres discusses Honduran coup

By
April 14, 2011 |

Gerardo Torres, a Honduran resistance leader, will speak at 7 p.m. Friday at the International House, 10 College Park in Davis.

Torres, a member of the FNRP, or Frente Nacional de Resistencia Popular (National Popular Resistance Front), comes to Davis following his appearance at the Latin American Solidarity Coalition national conference in Washington, D.C. The objective of the conference was to build a movement to oppose militarization in Latin America. Two years ago, a military coup in Honduras overthrew the democratically elected government of Manuel Zelaya.

According to a news release, Torres will present an eyewitness account of the ongoing repression that is taking place in Honduras, bearing witness to the large number of people who have been jailed, beaten, disappeared or killed in the two years since the coup.

He will discuss how the coup has been a catalyst for bringing together groups of people from various segments of society — such as students and youths, landless peasants, union workers, teachers, artists, gays and lesbians — into a massive popular resistance movement that is working toward “refounding the state” based on justice and equality.

Admission is free, but donations will be gladly accepted to help offset the expenses of Torres’ tour. For more information, email [email protected]

Group hears about bullying law

The April meeting of the Davis Woodland PFLAG — Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays — is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the sanctuary at Davis United Methodist Church, 1620 Anderson Road.

Wendy Hill, a member of state Assemblyman Tom Ammiano’s staff, will speak about his recently introduced AB 9 about bullying prevention and response.

This bill promotes a civil and safe educational environment for all students in California, regardless of race, gender, religion or sexual orientation. Specifically, the bill requires every California school district to create policy and procedures prohibiting discrimination, harassment, intimidation and bullying, and for reporting and addressing complaints.

This bill also provides professional development for school personnel on how to identify and intervene in these events.

UC Davis holds bike auction

More than 400 bicycles will be available for sale to the highest bidder.
