Five days of violence in Honduras sparked by 'privatizations'

Tuesday, June 4, 2019

Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez’s decision to repeal decrees that have sparked violent demonstrations against his government in recent days failed to stop protesters from returning to the streets on Monday.

On Sunday night, Hernandez pledged to overturn two decrees approved last year to set up entities with the power to restructure the education and health sectors. Critics feared the policies would lead to the privatization of public services, Reuters reports.
