Today, January 27th, marks the one year anniversary of the Lobo government which came to power through elections conducted by the defacto government responsible for the June 2009 coup detat and widely considered to be illegitimate. It also marks the one year anniversary of the forced exile of President Manuel Zelaya.
A broad coalition of Hondurans (teachers, unions, GLBT community, Human rights defenders, young people, ordinary folks, etc.) participated in today's march and demonstration organized by the Frente National de Resistencia Popular (FNRP), the main organizing force against the coup d'etat and the repression that continues.
Yesterday, a demonstration in the capital was attacked by military and people were arrested, so organizers were expecting the same. Today's march was peaceful and the military did not attack as thousands marched to the steps of the Honduran Supreme Court of Justice, a Court which has supported the coup and repressive measures since.
