Military coup in Honduras condemned – Sinn Féin

29 June, 2009 - by Raymond McCartney

Sinn Féin international spokesperson Raymond McCartney MLA has condemned the military coup in Honduras and demanded the immediate release of the democratically elected President, Manuel Zelaya.

Speaking from Stormont this afternoon Mr McCartney said,

“I want to condemn the kidnapping and military coup against the democratic President of Honduras Manuel Zelaya.

The military coup against the President is an illegal attempt to overthrow the progressive social agenda chosen by the Honduran people.

These type of military coups have inflicted decades of suffering and pain upon peoples across Latin America and the Irish Government must add its voice to those calling for the immediate release of President Zelaya.

The democratic wishes of the Honduran people must be respected and must be protected from this illegal move.” CRÍOCH
