Juan Orlando Hernandez of the conservative ruling National Party was declared the winner of the presidential election held in Honduras on Nov. 24. But the runner-up in the contest, left-wing candidate Xiomara Castro, has charged the election was stolen by fraud and demanded a recount. Castro is the wife of former Honduran President Manuel Zelaya, who was ousted in a coup backed by the military and Hernandez in 2009.

McKibben was inspired by the international anti-apartheid divestment campaign of the 1980s that was an important part of the movement that helped topple South Africa’s racist government.  Story continues
