From the green hills of Vermont, I send all my solidarity to the companeras and compañeros in Honduras and also to all those right at this minute who are in front of the White House and US embassies in other countries supporting the democracy in Honduras. Your collective resistance is inspiring not only because it is a demonstration of peace and solidarity from and with the Honduran citizenry but also shows the strong support for democracies and peoples around the world who are confronting multiple forces that weaken and overturn democratic institutions and practices.

Here we are in Panama -- 33 women from Mexico, Central America and the US sharing and deepening our understanding of power and patriarchy with all the passion and creativity that our collective energy and experience generate! Our location -- right beside the Panama Canal – adds an historic and political element to our workshop. For almost an entire century, the canal represented the imperial power of the US in Latin America. The long struggle of the Panamanians to gain control of the Canal was finally achieved in 1999.
