The National Front Against the Coup d'Etat, composed of the varied organized expressions in Honduras, in face of the crisis provoked by the coup d'etat, pronounces to the rest of the population, its clearly established position in the principles that have guided us and that guide us as an unwavering Popular Movement to transform this to a society where the wellbeing, inclusion and non-discrimination favor the majority of the country. In this sense we communicate:
That all of the country is mobilized, from the communities, the city, the state and the regions, with takeovers of city halls, sit-ins, protests and other forms of expressing repudiation, completely peaceful actions in the face of the coup government installed by the oligarchy through their pawns in the face of the legislative judicial and executive powers.
The Secretary-General of the Organization of American States, OAS, Mr. José Miguel Insulza, met yesterday with different actors in the country, candidates from the National and Liberal parties, the Cardinal, Supreme Court of Justice and the Public Ministry. Moments after he indicated that they do not recognize that they have violated the institutional order, announcing that the OAS, is clear that what has happened in Honduras is a coup d'etat and that in addition in breaks the institutional order, for which reasons they do not recognize the coup government of Mr. Micheletti.
The withdrawal of Honduras from the OAS, has grave consequences for the majority of the population in the country- 80% - since medicine, food, gas and other items come from other countries, and as if that weren't enough, all of the resources in terms of loans, subsidies, donations, etc. we wouldn't receive anymore. Those who aren't affected with the with withdrawal of the OAS are the business people, who have the economic and political power and some of whom have already left.
To the rest of the Honduran population continue peaceful actions of resistance from the different places you are, telling them that independently of what happens this 4th of July, the struggle is for respect for democratic institutions, for a transformation of hte society to be more inclusive, just and equitable.
We don't validate an electoral process that loses its validity when managed and conducted by those who from all points of view act illegally having usurped power through the armed path though the pretend that they have done it through the legal path. At the same time we exhort the international community to not support or validate an electoral process in these circumstances that you are aware of.
