Honduran Police State Repression
by Stephen Lendman
Honduras is a fascist police state.
On June 28, 2009, Obama colluded with Honduran fascists. With US approval and support, they ousted Honduras' democratically elected president.
Manuel Zelaya was arrested at home. Security forces confronted him at gunpoint.
Junta rule replaced him. Porfirio (Pepe) Lobo Sosa heads Honduras' government. It's illegitimate.
State terror is policy. The infamous CIA-created Battalion 316 was reactivated. In the 1980s, death squads disappeared, tortured, and murdered regime opponents.
A state of siege exists. Human rights violations are horrific. Killings, beatings, disappearances, and intimidation are commonplace.
