OK - for Honduras trial jury deliberations, Day Two, the courtroom is unlike yesterday allowed to be filled, and an overflow room upstairs. Inner City Press will, despite some push back yesterday… live tweet @SDNYLIVE thread below

Oojaddou even cheated tipper Pinto Thomaz. Now he apologizes to the government - but not Pinto Thomaz. He gets time served

Right now Judge Engelmayer's courtroom 318 is empty. Will stay on it, but #Honduras trial is wild - US says it will prove that now-jailed drug kingpin El Chapo Guzman gave $1 million to the president of Honduras (who UNSG @AntonioGuterres met without mentioning)
@antonioguterres Update (such as it is) Courtroom 318 is in limbo - the lawyers lounging around waiting to see if and when the jury has more questions or requests for exhibits; one of the lawyers in the hall along with community members. Inner City Press will have a story later ...
@antonioguterres Interim update again: in #6ix9ine trial the lawyers are still in the otherwise empty courtroom during the lunch hour 1-2, they were told the jurors might continue deliberating over lunch so to stay close. If no decision today - they'll be back on Monday...

Late last night our delegation arrived in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

This morning we started at 7:45am with a country briefing from the U.S. embassy, met with Foreign Minister Lisandro Rosales, and attended a bazaar with goods from embassy-supported programs.
I told the Honduran officials how deeply troubled I am by the culture of corruption and human rights abuses surrounding Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández.

It is important to convey these strong concerns at this critical moment in Honduras.
Next we held an emotional and powerful meeting with the mother and family of Berta Cáceres, a human rights activist who was murdered for her work to protect her indigenous land and the environment.

Justice must be done!

That 10 day mission or service trip you are taking this summer to #Uganda #Honduras #Nepal #Cambodia or #Haiti is trash and we are going to give you 8 reasons why:

1) You aren’t qualified. You have no relevant or useful training, experience or specialization.
2) It is a poor use of money. That $2,000 that you and each member of your “team” is spending? Invest it in the projects you think you’re helping instead.

3) It’s about you. This *experience* is actually not about the needs of “the people “ you are visiting in that country.
4) You are using poor people to make you feel better about your privilege and wealth. Rather than actually investing in efforts to help people get out of poverty, you offer handouts and temporary solutions.

5) You can visit a country for what it HAS rather than what it LACKS...
