Tell President Obama and the State Department: Recognizing the Honduran Elections means Complicity with Coup and Human Rights Violations
The Obama Administration struck a deal with the Republican ultra-right to achieve several state department appointee confirmations and now is recognizing the Honduran elections that took place on Sunday November 29th. These elections were carried out by an army that is in the midst of extreme repression of Honduras's non-violent resistance and that has repeatedly harassed and shut down media critical of the coup. The U.S. is one of the only countries in the world to recognize the elections and is thereby implicitly condoning the coup and the ongoing human rights violations in Honduras. If we do not force a change of course, then as Brazil's foreign minister recently said, the U.S. will become completely isolated from most of Latin America.
