Honduras: 10 years of resistance against right-wing coup

Today, June 28, 2019, marks 10 years since the coup d’état in Honduras that took democratically elected president Manuel Zelaya out of office. The coup, which was supported strategically and financially by the United States, unleashed a process of intensification of neoliberal and repressive policies in Honduras.

10 years later, the people of Honduras continue to stand up to US imperialist diktats and a violent and corrupt government in defense of their rights and their dignity.
