Pro Honduras democracy picket, London 22 July


From British daily The Morning Star:

‘Defend Honduras democracy’

Friday 17 July 2009

The Venezuela Solidarity Campaign (VSC) and the Unite union has called for an emergency picket outside the US embassy in London next week to demand “the defence of democracy” in Honduras.

The two organisations want to see an end to all US economic, political and military support to the illegitimate coup government currently in power in the Latin American country.

VSC chairwoman and Unite assistant general secretary Jennie Bremner urged trade unionists to support the picket.

“Around the world, people have condemned the horrific coup in Honduras and the wave of repression unleashed by the illegitimate government.

“It is time US rhetoric condemning the coup was matched with action, as the legitimate government of Honduras is demanding,” she said.

“We will be gathering outside the US embassy to express our solidarity with the Honduran people and demand an end to all US economic, political and military support to the current regime in Honduras.”

The picket will take place in London on July 22 at 5.00pm.

The US embassy is at 24 Grosvenor Square, London, W1A 2LQ. Map is here.

Artists mobilize again to repudiate the coup d’état and the de facto government in Honduras, in what we shall call the Plaza of Resistance, where Isis Obed Murillo was murdered on the 5th of July: with video: here.
