U.S. Representatives ask President Obama to denounce human rights abuses in Honduras

Yesterday Representatives Raul Grijalva and Jose Serrano circulated a Dear Colleague Letter addressed to President Obama asking him to denounce the human rights situation in Honduras. The letter is posted in a document below. The suspension of Constitutional Rights remains in effect, repression and detentions continue and the radio and TV outlets which were closed by the coup government remain closed. Please send the letter to your Representatives and ask them to be co-sponsors of the letter.

Although the negotiators for the legitimate government and the coup agreed on the San Jose points, there has not yet been a decision if the respective parties will sign the agreement, nor if there will be agreement on a date for a return of President Zelaya to his position.

Please act quickly to demand a denunciation of the massive human rights violations being committed.
