Tony Hernandez, the brother of the President of Honduras, is on trial in New York for drug-trafficking, and the Honduran president himself appears as an alleged conspirator in the case. Although he is not formally charged, it seems to be only the beginning of suspicions about Juan Orlando Hernandez’s connections to crime.
Far away from New York, Hondurans are leaving their crops and homes due to dryer and dryer seasons and evermore devastating storms. This touching photoreportage
from the California Sunday Magazine tells their stories, starting with a popular Central American refrain - “Te espero como lluvia de mayo,”
- I wait for you like the rain of May.
Also, the Nicaraguan movement Las Madres de Abril,
the mothers who lost children in 2018’s clashes with the government’s police forces, made a virtual museum
to honor their children’s memory.
