Honduran Coup Regime Imposes Media, Protest Crackdown

The Honduran coup regime has intensified its grip on power in the face of growing pressure for restoring the elected President Manuel Zelaya. On Sunday, coup leaders issued a decree granting themselves broad authority to clamp down on free speech. Under the new rules, the regime can ban protests and suspend media outlets found to have committed disturbances of the peace. Meanwhile, the regime also refused entry to a delegation from the Organization of American States that had come to seek a negotiated solution to the crisis. Speaking from his hideout in the Brazilian embassy, Zelaya called for a massive national protest against the coup regime. Honduran President Manuel Zelaya: Today is the day in which we call for peaceful resistance, for demonstrations for twenty-four continuous hours. You, my dear Hondurans, can’t lose your rights because someone, or a coup, restricts public liberties, violates human rights, murders and detains.

Thousands of Hondurans rallied through Tegucigalpa on Monday to voice their opposition to the coup that ousted progressive President Manuel Zelaya exactly a year ago: here.

One year after the Honduras coup, the new government still lacks the support of the people: here.

Honduran people are building resistance to coup regime: here.
