Honduras delegation


Matt Ginsberg-Jaeckle June 4 2022.

Recently I had the honor to interpret for a delegation of congressional representatives led by Rep. Ilhan Omar to Honduras and Guatemala to learn about the real roots of migration and the impact of U.S. foreign policy in the region. Come through Monday to hear a report back and discussion of the way US policy in Central America is fueling migration.

Cuban connection

Matt Ginsberg-Jaeckle January 7 2019:


This little school bus we came across in Havana was the bus that started my political activism 25 years ago. My first protest was as an eleven year old child to demand that our local paper cover the hunger strikers from pastors for peace who at the time were on this bus at the US-Mexico border trying to get to Cuba with a busload of medicine in defiance of the US embargo. While paying a visit to a friend I mentioned that story as part of why I’ve always wanted to go to Cuba and he said, “oh, that bus is right out front, it’s what we (the MLK Center in Havana) use to take people around.” Talk about history coming full circle. — in Havana, Cuba.

There is an article in here that a group of us worked really hard on connecting the dots between the refugee caravans, US intervention in Honduras and the strategic importance of connecting our local struggles with global struggles if we are going to win. I would love to hear your feedback on it and also on the many other insightful, inspirational and essential readings in this, the first LeftRoots journal, “Out to Win!” The link below will take you to a place you can download the whole journal for free.
