Latin American solidarity organizations to hold rally to denounce military coup in Honduras
The Hands Off Venezuela campaign, along with other Latin America solidarity organizations, have called for a emergency rally and press conference to denounce the recent military coup against democratically elected president Honduran Manuel Zelaya. The coup came on the day in which Hondurans were to go to the polls to vote on a constitutional referendum that would have laid the basis for dramatically changing the political landscape of the country.
The San Francisco chapter of the Hands Off Venezuela campaign denounces this coup as blatant violation of the democratic will of the people of Honduras. We call for the reinstatement of president Manuel Zelaya and that the will and right to self-determination of the Honduran people be respected. No to U.S. intervention in Honduras and Latin America!
We invite individuals and the media to come to the rally and press conference on Monday, June 29th and 4 PM at 870 Market St. in San Francisco.
*The U.S. Hands Off Venezuela Campaign was initiated in December 2002 as part of the International Hands Off Venezuela Campaign. U.S. HOV opposes all forms of intervention by the U.S. government and its agencies in Venezuela and Latin America. The campaign works to educate and raise awareness about events in Venezuela in order to counter the bias of the mainstream media and to build solidarity between American and Venezuelan trade unionists and working people in general.
