Honduran Media is Being Silenced by the US-Trained Military
We Don’t Have to be Silent!
Tuesday will culminate a week-long march against the illegal coup in Honduras by hundreds of Honduras nonviolently calling for the immediate and unconditional restitution of elected president Mel Zelaya.
You may not hear about it from US media, but even Hondurans may not know about it, because Honduran soldiers have attacked, occupied and closed Honduran radio, print and TV stations. Journalists who report on resistance to the coup have received death threats and been killed. This struggle has now entered a crucial phase as the National Front of Resistance Against the Coup d'Etat and the farmers movement have summoned the social, union and democratic movements to a National March that began on the 5 of August and will culminate on August 11 in Tegucigalpa and San Pedro Sula. They have asked for actions of solidarity around the world.
Tuesday at 5 pm we will visually dramatize the attempt to silence journalists, human rights defenders, activists working for a return of democracy and thousands of ordinary Hondurans by violence, arrests, and threats. Join us!
