Honduran de facto government failed on plan to exhaust popular movement

Caracas, Sept 09 ABN.- Though the de facto government in Honduras has tried to exhaust the popular movement in the course of time, after 73 days of resistance, the National Front against the Coup d’état continues having a great support and a continual activity.

The above statement was affirmed to the Venezuelan state-run news agency ABN by the assistant secretary to the Confederation of Education Workers of the Republic of Argentina (CTERA) and elected deputy to the Buenos Aires city, Francisco Nenna, who is now in Honduras.

“The conflict is still alive, the resistance continues alive and growing. It has to be highlighted the great expression of support of the people to the resistance movements. That makes us believe that this conflict involves the whole population and for that reason we think, and people here are convinced so, that this will end up in the victory of the Honduran people,” the deputy expressed.

Nenna is member of the mission of American educational workers, made by representatives from Canada, Mexico, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica and Argentina, who are now in Tegucigalpa in order to support the Honduran resistance and try to break the media siege imposed by the de facto government.

“We think that the most important thing is to break the media barriers imposed here in Honduras, through the loss of absolute rights. There remain just a few ways of expression, such as Channel 36 or Radio Honduras and some communitarian radio stations which are impartially informing what occurs in Honduras,” he warned.

The mission of teachers took part on the first National Assembly of the Front against the coup d’état, where they agreed to strengthen the structures of the organization so as to reach the shantytowns and villages, aiming at increasing their actions to recover the constitutional order.

The 500 representatives from the 18 Honduran provinces reaffirmed their demand for the restoration of the constitutional order and the constitutionally elected president, Manuel Zelaya, and the call to a “popular, participatory, comprehensive and democratic” national constituent assembly.

They reaffirmed as well their active repudiation to the electoral process next November 29 in case it is organized by the regime that took office after the interruption of the rule of law last June 28.
