By Force / A la fuerza



This week on War News Radio, “By Force.” Reporter Liliana Frankel spent summer 2015 living and working at a migrant shelter in Oaxaca, Mexico. While she was there, she collected interviews with people passing through. This week, we hear the story of Lisandro Lopez, a Honduran veteran of the Iraq War. Lisandro’s is the first in a series of stories we’re producing from Liliana’s interviews. Take a listen.

We also recorded a version of this show in Spanish. Listen here:

My sister in law sent this to me. I want to say Thank you for your interest in Lisandro’s story. I am Natalie Lopez, the ex wife of Lisandro. Out daughters deal with a lot of sadness surrounding their father. It makes sense the things you were reporting about him. I knew some of it, but not all of it. And this perspective had helped me a lot forgive him and stuff. He never did make it across last year, he was detained and deported. But I heard from him about 3 weeks ago he was in Mexico again and trying again. If he gets close again I will take the girls to see him.
