Honduras: the very strange elections of November 2017

Honduras is a tropical country punished by poverty, corruption and violence. As if that weren’t enough, on November 26th, 2017 Honduras had some very peculiar elections: even though millions of people were called on to vote that day, only one vote counted in the end: that of President Juan Orlando Hernández, who decided to stay for another four years, no matter what the polls said. Since then, protests have been unleashed all over the country. What is happening in Honduras? Who is Juan Orlando Hernández? What is the Trump administration’s role in all of this? Find out in this video. Video: VisualPolitik EN. 19 February 2018
