Welcome back to another week of Central American news!
This week, our journalist in charge of Honduras, Jalileh García, wrote an opinion piece in Remezcla
on how international media tends to ignore Honduras when the topic is not gangs or migration. She writes:
We can’t just stop at being upset at a Honduran women being tear gassed at the US-Mexico border. We also need to be called to action when Honduras’ military police uses tear gas against protesters, who just want to see the education and health systems improve, rather than fall further into decay.
I can only agree with Jalileh - international coverage needs to get smarter and more inclusive on what we cover from Central America.
That is the primary goal of this newsletter. So, thank you, readers, for reading and supporting Central American News. See you next week for more.
