National Front Against the Coup D’état
Communiqué Number 2

The popular movement, through its different organized manifestations, reports to the rest of the Honduran people that we remain in the struggle at the national level, in resistance against the coup d’état perpetrated by the ultra-right oligarchy and we communicate the following:

1. We reaffirm that what happened on June 28, 2009, against the government of President José Manuel Zelaya Rosales, is a coup d’état and a violation of the Constitution of the Republic and a breaking of the State of Law.
2. Orders have been given to repress the peaceful resistance mobilizations and all people who are not in agreement with the coup d’état.
3. Those leading the repression are soldiers, former soldiers of the national army, the national police and Battalion 316, a saddening reminder for Honduras of the times of the cold war, for the assassinations and disappearances committed in the service of the oligarchy.
4. To the Honduran people, we ask you to remain in resistance and to continue the peaceful demonstrations in the major cities, highways, and municipalities of the country.
5. The coup d’état has been rejected internationally and in a U.N. resolution; they have refused to recognize the farce that installed Roberto Micheletti as president.
6. We condemn the violation of the freedom of expression. There are closed television and radio stations, and journalists who are imprisoned, persecuted or with arrest warrants.
7. We make public the knowledge that the Public Ministry is preparing legal injunctions that are dated before the coup occurred against citizen President Zelaya Rosales and his cabinet in order to justify their actions.
8. To make the population aware that at the meeting in Central Park on June 30, organized by the coupists, the employees of fast food restaurants, maquiladoras, and private security companies were obligated to participate in the event.
9. We invite the Honduran people to continue demonstrating in all forms possible against the coup d’état and for the re-establishment of constitutional order with the return of President José Manuel Zelaya Rosales.
