About Vicki Cervantes:

Victoria Cervantes  has been a long time solidarity activist and active in immigrant rights and the antiwar movement. She is one of the founders of the Chicago based group, La Voz de los de Abajo, which was born in 1998 after Hurricane Mitch with the aim of developing solidarity with Honduras, in particular with the campesino communities. La Voz de los de Abajo members have traveled to Honduras and brought speakers from Honduras to the U.S. for almost 15 years and has worked with the CNTC on community radio projects.

Since the coup in June 2009, La Voz has organized 7 delegations of human rights observers to Honduras to accompany the resistance and social movements in different regions of the country including the Aguan Valley and is one of the founding organizations in 2010 of the Honduras Solidarity Network. Cervantes is one of the coordinator for the delegations and represents La Voz in the HSN.   La Voz de los de Abajo has a blog Honduras Resists (hondurasresists.blogspot.com) and is on Facebook. The HSN also has website Honduras Solidarity Network on google sites.  La Voz de los de Abajo and HSN are organizing human rights observation delegations this year and looking for interested folks.
