Sunday Nov. 29th was election day in Honduras. Those who continue to oppose the military coup in power in Honduras since last July consider the elections fraudulent as the elections were organized by the coup regime, without restoration of the democratically elected president. They argue that the elections were held with in an atmosphere of sever repression and good number of the opposition candidates had withdrawn from the election. The movement against the coup, of which the Honduran labor movement and peasant organizations are the backbone, called for a boycott of the elections. Will more about the elections from members of La Voz de los Abajo on today’s program.
