On November 29th, elections were carried out amidst defacto military rule in Honduras. For four and a half months the country has suffered media censorship, widespread human rights violations, brutality against women and the LGBT community, and targeted assasinations of resistance leaders. Though Barack Obama initially condemned the coup which ousted democratically-elected president Manuel Zelaya, his administration expressed no qualms with these abuses, and has recognized the farce elections.
With this we witness the inauguration of a new model: overturn the leftist and replace him with the oligarch. So long as elections are realized, regardless of the conditions, the US will support you. This is a betrayal of the sovereignty of Latin American, proving to the world that the superpower, even under Obama, will support military coups and mass brutality so long as they bolster US interests.
Professor Noam Chomsky, veteran commentator on Latin American affairs, will discuss the coup in Honduras, and what it means to the hemisphere. Join us in this evening of solidarity with the Honduran resistance.

[Past] Fast for Honduras!
10/05/2009 - Are you able to fast in a public place in front of an institution that has supported the coup in Honduras (eg catholic church, a relevant embassy/consulate/political institution, a business that has supported the coup, etc) for part of this date? Make a cardboard sign or banner with reference to the worldwide fast for honduras, talk to people passing by and let them know what is happening in honduras / invite people to find out more and join in solidarity efforts, and have a photo taken and send it to us via email, website, facebook, etc.. If with more time you can do this or organise a bigger group of people it is not necessary to do it on the 5th October although this is ideal because it is the 100th day of the resistance.. This can be in the form of a (water only, liquids only) fast for the duration of the demonstration, you could also be promoting a boycott as a form of fasting

Honduran Civil Society and Immigrant Leaders Visit Washington, DC and other Key Cities in the U.S.
One month after the interruption of constitutional order in Honduras through a military coup d'etat and in the wake of widespread reports of human rights violations harkening back to events of the 1980s, the National Alliance of Latin American and Caribbean Communities (NALACC) is bringing a delegation of civil society representatives from that country to the U.S. to participate in a speaking tour and to advocate for the restoration of constitutional order and respect for human rights. The tour will start in Washington D.C. with visits to Congressional offices and will be followed by press and speaking events in various U.S. cities, including New York, Boston, and Chicago.
