This delegation will focus on Honduran political prisoners, the victims of political repression and human rights activists defending the environment and their communities. Delegates will meet with Honduran organizations and grassroots movement representatives who are on the front lines of resistance. The purpose of the delegation will be to gather information and testimonies to hold US and Canadian officials accountable for their role in the human rights crisis that followed the 2009 coup, for both governments’ support of the Juan Orlando Hernández administration, and for promoting policies that force Hondurans to flee their country.

CODEPINK Citizen Diplomacy Peace Delegation to Iran
May 25-June 4, 2020
Don't miss this historic opportunity to explore Iran, learn about the Iranian people, and see the effects of US sanctions first-hand.
We are deeply concerned with the rising tensions between the United States and Iran. The Trump administration’s reckless policies are leading us towards another disastrous war in the Middle East, this time with Iran. As we teeter on the brink of war, we are encouraged us to renew our friendships with the common people of Iran, the primary victims of U.S. sanctions and those who will suffer and die if a war breaks out. Despite all the suffering the U.S. has imposed on Iran—regime change, sanctions, violence, threats of war—the Iranian people continue to show how well they understand the difference between the American government and the American people. The Iranian people love Americans.
Cost of the trip is approximately $3200 per person (depending on airfare costs) and will cover visa fees, international airfare, three delicious meals per day, accommodations, domestic transportations in Iran, museum and other entrance fees. Booking Deposit is $200 and is non-refundable. DEADLINE TO APPLY IS MARCH 14
