The people of Honduras have bravely and massively resisted the June 28
military coup that removed President Manuel Zelaya. They have carried out
huge protests and strikes. The military has responded with brutal repression
including tear gas, clubs, and gunfire. They have arrested many people,
killed many people, and closed down all independent news media.

The U.S. has continued funding the Honduran government, and has criticized
President Zelaya as irresponsible for trying to return to Honduras to resume
his rightful place as president, while they have not condemned the
repression. Groups of U.S. legislators have traveled to Honduras in support
of a phony "election" set for November 29. All supporters of human rights
should demand a change in this policy, in the name of solidarity with the
Honduran people.
