(en) Anarkismo.net: Paraguay, another Honduras on the making? Interview with Fionuala Cregan
On 29th June we interviewed Fionuala Cregan on the Paraguayan crisis, its background and
the Latin American context in which it takes place. She is based in Argentina and works
with the Latin America Regional Office of Church World Service. She has also written for
the Irish Times on Paraguay and has extensive research on the impact of agribusiness on
Paraguayan peasants' lives. The views expressed here are her own. We hope that this
interview will give a better insight into the developments in that country. ---- 1. Some
people, in fact most Latin American leaders, have deplored the “destitution” of Lugo as a
thinly veiled coup with a constitutional disguise. The Vatican, Spain and Germany, on the
other hand, have stated this is a constitutional process and as such should be respected.
What is your view on the recent political crisis in Paraguay?
