The New Orleans Coalition in Support of Democracy in Honduras calls on New Orleanians, a city that has long relationship with Honduras, to gather on Friday to denounce the military coup and demand the reinstatement of the elected Presidents, Manuel Zelaya. The president was ousted by the military on Sunday, which was supported by Honduran economic and political elite, but which has been repudiated by the Honduran working masses. Zelaya angered the Honduran elite by raising the minimum wage (2000 Lempiras—US$120 to 5,000 Lempiras, US$300), developing an independent foreign policy, including entering ALBA economic alliance with Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Cuba, Nicaragua, Dominica, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Antigua and Barbudas, and having Cuban doctors serve the poor. Thousands of Hondurans have protested the coup and have faced severe repression.

The coalition makes the following demands

• Unconditional reinstatement of President Manuel Zelaya
• Release of all Political prisoners, including the peasant, labor student and human rights activists that have been arrested by the military
• Prosecution of the coup leaders
• We also demand on the Obama administration recall their ambassador and end aid to the government, and actually acknowledge that a military coup has taken place, which they have failed to do so far.
