On Sunday, 29 November, about 30 Nicaraguans and gringos gathered at the metrocentro traffic circle, holding signs and banners in solidarity with the Honduran people. Two news channels came by… don’t know if they aired anything or not. But here are some photos.

In light of the repression that Honduran’s undergo on a daily basis, and considering the lists of dissidents which are being drawn up by the Honduran Army, elections in Honduras cannot proceed in a free and fair way. The atmosphere of intimidation and violence makes democracy impossible.
A group of individuals in Washington DC got together and posted approximately 100 crosses which bore the words "End the Coup" and "Close the SOA" in heavily trafficked urban areas, mostly near metro stops. Several crosses stayed up for a full week before they were taken down.
They used zip ties to quickly strap these home-made and hand-painted crosses into place.
Washington DC – A large number of protesters representing different organizations which are opposed to the de facto regime in Honduras gathered in front of the offices of Chlopak, Leonard, Schechter & Associates, the DC based lobbying firm which has a contract with the government of Roberto Micheletti to clean up the image of the coup regime in the United States and internationally.
