Embassy of Honduras Denounces Attempt to Force Out President from Honduras September 22,

September 22, 2009 The Embassy of Honduras in Washington DC strongly condemns the use of violence and intimidation by military and police forces controlled by the illegitimate government of Micheletti against the people of Honduras and calls for the immediate restoration of peace in Tegucigalpa.

According to reports from the ground, peaceful demonstrators supporting the return of the constitutional president of Honduras are being attacked and beaten and an overall atmosphere of insecurity is now being imposed around the Embassy of Brazil where President Manuel Zelaya is stationed.

According to President Zelaya, this morning the Brazilian embassy was surrounded by military and police forces and media outlets are being silenced. A curfew has also been imposed and reports of injuries of peaceful supporters are surfacing. President Zelaya called on the armed forces not to attack their own people and encouraged the Honduran people to continue mobilizing for peace and the restoration of constitutional order.
