There's been a rather glaring dearth of coverage of those events, and their implications, and, as far as I can tell, even less in the way of voiced perspectives of actual Hondurans, or Honduran immigrants.But last weekend, reporting for The Nation, Marcos Meconi and GOOD contributor Joseph Huff-Hannon headed over to the Bronx's Ferry Point Park-a regular gathering spot for a number of New York City's 40,000 or so Honduran immigrants-in an effort to hear the varying perspectives held by the members of that community. The results (above) are pretty compelling.
