Our emergency international delegation to Honduras, organized from the United States by CODEPINK, Global Exchange and Non-Violence International, began its fact-finding mission in the wake of the June 28 coup that overthrew President Manuel Zelaya.
The International Mission to Honduras denounces the Honduran de facto government’s brutal repression of thousands of people protesting pacifically today against the Coup d'Etat.
By recognising the coup in Honduras, Obama follows the old US Latin American policy of siding with corporate interests against the will of the people.
Zelaya's biggest sin was proposing, through a non-binding
referendum, a Constitutional convention to consider structural change.
