Boston Informational Picket in Solidarity with the Honduran Resistance
12 Aug 2009
On Tuesday, August 11, nearly 60 people gathered at 4:30pm on the Park Street Station entrance to speak out in solidarity with the Honduran resistance. A diverse group of people held signs that read, “Micheletti fuera / out!”, “Bring democracy back to Honduras”, “Action to remove the coup from Honduras, now!”, “Honduras resists, democracy now!” The event was organized in response to a call for a Global Day of Action by the National Front of Resistance Against the Coup in Honduras.

The action featured an open microphone to those who wanted to say their message to the people on the streets of Boston and to the people resisting in Honduras. A common theme throughout the messages was the fact that the Obama administration is not doing enough to restore democracy in Honduras. While President Obama has declared that the only Honduran president the U.S. recognizes is Manuel Zelaya, Hilary Clinton forced President Zelaya into a process of mediation with the de facto ruler of Honduras Roberto Micheletti. With this move the U.S. has placed both men at the same level, legitimizing the coup makers. The event was organized by the Committee in Solidarity with the Resistance in Honduras and Proyecto Hondureno, with the support of many individuals and organizations, among them Centro Presente, AFSC Project Voice, Mass. Global Action, the Boston May Day Committee, the Bolivarian Circle of Boston, CISPES, and others.
