London: Condemn the reactionary military coup in Honduras - emergency picket

Monday, 29 June 2009

 

In the early hours of Sunday June 28, a group of soldiers took the democratically elected president of Honduras, Mel Zelaya and gun point and transported him by plane to Costa Rica. A new president was sworn in, while the Army decreed a curfew, tanks patrolled the streets, the Army took off the air the government TV channel and a list of social movement leaders to be arrested was issued. 

 

We strongly reject this reactionary military coup against the legitimate government of Zelaya. The immediate reason for the coup was the attempt by Zelaya to call a Constituent Assembly in order to reform the country's constitution. Zelaya's government had carried out a whole series of progressive reforms in the fields of education, health care, breaking the monopoly of the multinationals in the pharmaceutical and oil sector, increased minimum wage by 60% and therefore had the support of the majority of workers, peasants and the poor. Zelaya's government had brought Honduras into the ALBA and had aligned itself with the progressive governments of Venezuela, Bolivia, etc. 

 

The masses have come out on the streets and called for a general strike on Monday 29 to reject this coup. We give them out full support. We demand that the British government issues a strongly worded statement in support of president Zelaya as the only legitimate president of Honduras

 

Down with the reactionary coup!
Bring back Zelaya!
Solidarity with the people of Honduras!
