Violent repression has exploded against the democracy movement in Honduras ever since a sham election in November. The vote was conducted by coup makers who overthrew elected president Manuel Zelaya.

Emboldened by U.S. support, death squads now roam the streets, beating, torturing, raping and murdering militants. Shamefully, President Obama sent a delegation to the rightwing puppet president’s inauguration. Worse, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urged normalization of relations and renewal of $30 million in aid to Honduras. This a mere seven days after the U.S. embassy whined it had “grave concern” about violence and intimidation against individuals expressing “political opinions” about the coup.

Prominent among the victims was gay leader Walter Trochez, assassinated while documenting the huge increase in homophobic killings since the emergence of the resistance movement. At least 18 other queer activists have been killed. Feminists and youth, who also catapulted into the forefront of the resistance, are being attacked, along with labor and indigenous leaders.

The best possibility for stopping the mayhem is with protest from the U.S., which is the principal supporter of the oligarchy. Go to www.socialism.com and click on TAKE ACTION for information on challenging U.S. policy.
