Please join me in solidarity with the people of Honduras to determine their own future.
I urge all to support the citizens of Honduras in their demand that President Manuel Zelaya be restored immediately to his constitutionally elected post and authority as President of Honduras. It is imperative that citizens across the United States write and call upon President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to quickly execute every available influence to ensure that President Zelaya is safely returned to his post.
Your voices are urgently needed to encourage our government to exercise its influence to ensure that the Ambassadors of Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua who have been violently kidnapped are not harmed and are immediately safely returned.
The flowering of Participatory Democracy in Latin America has been ruthlessly assaulted by anti-democratic sectors of the Honduran elite in collusion with sectors of the armed forces. Their shameless violation of constitutional laws can not be allowed to take hold. The coup d'état against President Zelaya is a threat to the growing desire and organization of citizens across our hemisphere to more actively seek forms and agendas of governance to achieve their basic social, economic, cultural, and political well being.
