This session will examine the impact of free trade agreements, climate change, and support for authoritarian governments which have repressed social movements working for change.  It will include a focus on Honduras, in which a coup in 2009 led to the corruption of government institutions and militarization of society, propelling mass caravans (or: an exodus of people), and it will offer recommendations for needed policy change.
