NI co-leads emergency delegation to Honduras

In light of the military coup in Honduras in the early hours of Sunday, June 28, 2009 and the arrest and forced exile of Honduran President Manuel Zelaya, we are forming an Emergency International Delegation to go to Honduras as soon as possible. The purpose of the delegation is to provide support to members of the government and civil society facing arrest and intimidation at the hands of the military and to be in solidarity with their call for respect for the rule of law and for the immediate restitution of President Zelaya.
The president has called for massive nonviolent civil disobedience in Honduras
The delegation is being organized by Andrés Thomas Conteris of Nonviolence International and Medea Benjamin of Global Exchange/CODEPINK. The host organization will be the Sustainable Development Network of Honduras ( Tel. 504-235-4141.
The first members of the delegation will depart for Honduras on Monday, June 29, and others will follow during the week. [All delegates pay their own expenses and accept responsibility for themselves.]
