Honduras Resists

Honduran women and men were called upon by President Manuel Zelaya Rosales to participate in a popular referendum on 28 June 2009 in order to convene a National Constituent Assembly.

In the morning of the day of the referendum, the president was abducted and removed from the country by a coup d’état.

Diverse Hondurans headed for the Presidential Palace to demand that Zelaya be returned to the office which the people entrusted to him.
