Hi everyone,

Approximately 200 people participated at some point to the demo today, during a Berlin cold snap -10 degrees celsius. The demo started in front the Department of Foreign Affairs (German State Department) and moved through the main streets during rush hour, escorted by a LGBTI drum choir yelling, “STOP HOMOPHOBIA!” Hundreds of flyers were handed out to the bystanders calling for an end to the human rights violations in Honduras and non-recognition of the government which takes office January 27th.

The German Green Party and the Linke (Left party) were present with representatives. The demands from our rally were handed over to the FDP party personnel after we arrived in front of the office.

The spirits and camaraderie was high, the activists, some with possible frost bite made their voices heard and we will continue to do so.

Feel free to distribute the photos.

I look forward to seeing the US demo fotos and videos!

Watch the for upcoming video of the demo.

In solidarity,

Liebe Grüßen / Take care…

Chicago Rose
