TORTURE: SYSTEMATIC REPRESSION AFTER THE COUP D'ETAT

The political military coup in Honduras, which took place on June 28, 2009, has special characteristics which differentiate it from past coups in this country and in the rest of Latin America.

The first component is the participation of the old followers of the National Security Doctrine that have continued practicing torture with impunity since the 80's and who are the principle military and police advisors of the de facto regime.

Dear Colleague:

A Triumph for Democracy in Honduras?

On Friday October 30th, a U.S. brokered, Agreement for National Reconciliation and the Strengthening of Democracy in Honduras was signed between President Zelaya and coup regime leader Micheletti. Among many sectors, the deal is being hailed as a triumph for democracy in Honduras.

The Agreement is Just the Beginning

The Agreement: Just the Beginning of the Struggle

Before 6a.m. on 28 June 2009, the Armed Forces of Honduras forcibly removed elected president Manuel Zelaya from his home and left him in his pajamas on a runway in Costa Rica. Electricity and media channels were cut off in Tegucigalpa, and turned back on in the afternoon to reveal the head of the National Congress, Roberto Micheletti, being sworn in as president. It was a coup d’etat, the third in the hemisphere in this decade, the first in Honduras since 1978, and it would not slip by quietly.
