Honduras: Wealthy Landowners Attempt to Quash Farming Collectives. Andrew Kennis, Truthout: “While 2011 has been a year filled with killings of activist farmers in the conflict-ridden region, August was an exceptionally violent month during what has been an exceptionally violent year…. Why is this violence occurring? What is the root of the conflict? Is the depiction of the situation in Aguan given by the Honduran government – only recently recognized internationally by the Organization of American States – an accurate reflection of what is going on?
