Honduras Caravan

In early November 2018 Gloria La Riva and Adan Plascencia were embedded as reporters for Liberation with the Honduran caravan in Mexico.

Eyewitness report: Our first encounter with the Honduras Caravan.
As night fell on a Mexican highway heading south from La Tinaja in the state of Veracruz on our way to meet the Honduran caravan, we came upon the first group of 200 Honduran refugees. They had walked more than 25 miles today in the humid heat, without water or food of any kind. Those we spoke with had entered Mexico from Guatemala on October 15. Although some 7,000 people, almost all Hondurans, entered en masse, some groups are separated by distance if they were transported by sympathetic people.
The group of 200 Hondurans we met had women and men of all ages, including pregnant women, babies and children.[8]
