Situation in Honduras: democracy breakdown

The General Assembly,

Deeply concerned by the coup d’état that took place in the Republic of
Honduras on 28 June 2009,

Deeply concerned also by the acts of violence against diplomatic personnel
and accredited officials in the Republic of Honduras in violation of the 1961 Vienna
Convention on Diplomatic Relations,

Recalling the principles and purposes of the Charter of the United Nations,
international law, and conventions on international peace and security,

Gravely concerned by the breakdown in the constitutional and democratic
order that has led to the endangerment of security, democracy and the rule of law,
and that has jeopardized the security of Honduran and foreign citizens,

1.Condemns the coup d’état in the Republic of Honduras that has interrupted the democratic and constitutional order and the legitimate exercise of power in Honduras, and resulted in the removal of the democratically elected President of that country, Mr. José Manuel Zelaya Rosales;

2.Demands the immediate and unconditional restoration of the legitimate and Constitutional Government of the President of the Republic, Mr. José Manuel Zelaya Rosales, and of the legally established authority in Honduras;

3.Decides to recognize no Government other than that of the Constitutional President, Mr. José Manuel Zelaya Rosales;

4.Requests the Secretary-General to inform the General Assembly in a timely manner with regard to the evolving situation in that country.

The Popular Resistance Front of Honduras issues an urgent call to international social movements, networks, campaigns, human rights organizations and communications media to send delegations to our country, especially to stand by us this Thursday, the day we expect the return of the Constitutional President of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya Rosales, and on which there will be widespread demonstrations.

We call on everyone to increase solidarity and help us break the media blockade imposed on our country.

For our part, we wish to tell you that we continue to mobilize throughout the country, with the creativity and force of the people.

From the lands of Lempira and Morazán, we continue to raise our voices and intensify our efforts.

  1. By what constitution is the military removal by order of the Supreme Court of Honduras unconstitutional? I didn't know that we had a world tribunal with it's own constitution that trumps the constitution of sovereign nations.
