As we speak people in Honduras have undertaken a national march that will culminate on August 11 in the capital Tegucigalpa and in San Pedro Sula. Others have undertaken to cosponsor an international day of solidarity to show support for this march in other countries. Here's the call out from the School of the Americas Watch.
Global Day of Action for Honduras:
Tuesday, August 11, 2009
Since the military coup--after more than 40 days of untiring efforts by thousands of farmers, women, indigenous people, teachers, students, unionists and ordinary citizens of the cities and the countryside to revert it and to recover democracy and dignity -- the repression by the School of the Americas trained military and the coup plotters has not notched the fighting spirit of the heroic Honduran people.
This struggle has now entered a crucial phase as the National Front of Resistance Against the Coup d'Etat and the farmers movement have summoned the social, union and democratic movements to a National March that began on the 5 of August and will culminate on August 11 in Tegucigalpa and San Pedro Sula.
In support of this National March, we call you to participate in a "Global Day of Action for Honduras", which will take place on on Tuesday, August 11, 2009. We seek to support strong solidarity efforts in carrying out political and cultural mobilization, concrete actions, and political pressure and lobbying, as well as any and all possible activities that help advance the Honduran popular resistance in defeating this military coup.
Please contact Jake at SOA Watch at to inform us about your plans of action and work for the "Global Day of Action for Honduras" as soon as possible.
Globalize Hope!
Globalize the Struggle!
