2013 Honduran Elections
We unmistakably denounce the Honduran 2013 Elections as fraudulent. Our legal restrictions from the TSE burdened our ability to publicly denounce the irregularities and massive fraud taking place during the elections yesterday. Let us be clear, we personally witnessed vote buying, intimidation, voters being denied the right to vote, disproportionate representation of the national party in management of the voting process and conflicts, and more. We will be releasing a formal report of these confirmed irregularities and do so in sorrow for the Honduran people, especially at risk activists and LGBTQIA community. Our commitment to exposing these crimes against human rights remains our priority.
