This time they head to the “Francisco Morazán” central park, seeing as the Micheletti Thug Trolls took over the Resistance Plaza and the areas adjacent to it. In recent days there were four important events for the Marchers, first: An 70% abstention against the elections of Sunday November 29th, second: The development of a fantastic caravan made up of hundreds of vehicles that went throughout the streets of the capital, the third: A spontaneous gathering of hundreds of protesters in front of the Brazillian embassy, where President Mel is, to give him moral support and salutations, and the fourth: A massive assembly of Marchers in the STIBYS union headquarters, which looked like it was going to explode. These four events, the last three of which happened on Monday, have a common characteristic: they demonstrate to us that the Resistance is more alive than ever and fighting with more energy in the streets and everywhere else it is called to fight for the interests of the people whose rights have been violated. They tell us that the struggle is long-term, that they are organized and continue organizing themselves to take power peacefully. They express to us that the crimes committed against a defenseless people should be punished. That the military, soldiers, cops, vultures or whatever you want to call them should go back to their barricades to keep fattening. Energetically they tell us that the oligarchy, the dictatorship and the coup-makers will not continue sinking roots into the people and should pack their bags to leave. They scream to us that the people are united in the Resistance Front, as the only social-political alternative that exists, to take Honduras forward and get it out of the poisonous claws that it finds itself in. They tell us that the people are on their feet and when they start to march, there is no amount of force that can detain them.
“Brothers and sisters, we are going to stay here because the soldiers have taken the National Congress and the area around it, but the struggle continues and you know it. We've been in struggle for 158 days now and we won't stop and won't give up. We will wait here to hear what the coup congresspeople say, if there is or isn't restitution, we will see who voted against and who in favor, we will be here all morning and evening and if possible all night. Remember brothers that this coup d'etat came from the oligarchy, from the military, from the Church represented by the Cardinal and some of the protestant churches under Evelio Reyes. The Resistance is demonstrating that we are more than them, there are more of us than those that voted, and one thing is sure brothers and sisters, in the next elections we are going to beat the coup-makers, we are going for a single candidate of the the people, of the Resistance, we are going to corner them. We have a common objective and only with the unity that we are demonstrating are we going to achieve our liberatory struggles, the same ones left to us by Morazán and that will carry us forth to achieve the transformation against those who have sucked our blood, that is why we are going to take power and we will achieve it because when a people decide to fight nobody can stop it. We are peaceful, it is the coup-makers who attack us, but they won't stop us. The criminal congresspeople don't represent our interests, they represent the interests of the oligarchy. This struggle continues, independently of what the congress decides and we are going to win it brothers and sisters because we have truth on our side."
“Look at my fingers, they are clean of ink, right, now show me yours, ahhh you didn't vote either, that's why we hit the coup-makers hard with the abstention. Those coup-makers should reinstate Mel Zelaya, they took him out, they have to put him back, if they don't do it, believe me the Resistance will punish them just like we punished Elvin. But look, they think if they don't reinstate him they are going to stop us, no my friend, we're continuing forward towards the Constitutional Assembly. We're not moving from here until Juan says so and if we have to stay until the morning we'll stay. After all, that's what we came here to do. Look how many people there are brother and we're all very happy because today is an important day, an historic day, today a coup d'etat could be reversed or confirmed and in either case the Resistance comes out winning, because if they reinstate Mel we'll have a big party and we're going to go get him from the Brazilian embassy and if they don't reinstate him we continue in the streets protesting, but even more organized, because there's enough in the Resistance for a long time brother, not like the Thug Micheletti says that we are just four vagrant rebels. You see how the soldiers are, they are armed as if for a war, so be careful, at any moment they could repress us. Look, I came by the old presidential palace and over there they have the tank ready with its water cannon ready to spray us, that's why I'm telling you don't be too confident especially not around those traitor soldiers. They have already beat me twice, that's why I don't see them as authorities or as friends, I'd rather have pests in my bed than friends like those. Look, let me tell you something, whether or not they reinstate Mel, the people who killed our brothers and sisters will pay for it, they won't escape, they will all be judged and sent to jail, if not here, then that [Spanish] judge Garzón will do it, he got Pinochet and this one is an apprentice of that Dictator. Write down that we are headed towards the Constitutional Assembly and we won't stop, they can do what they want but they won't stop us.”
