Honduras Coup

PLEASE Call the State Department (202-647-4000) on Monday August 24, 2009 …
[Ask ten friends, or fifty or more, to also call]
… AND SAY NO! to Hillary Clinton meeting with Honduran Coup Makers and Human Rights Violators.
According to State Department spokesperson Ian Kelly, an official delegation of the regime installed by military coup in Honduras is invited to Washington to meet with U.S. "officials".
The meeting will be to work "toward restoration of democratic and constitutional power in Honduras."
The regime has used State repression and terror since June 28th, including the killings of at least 10 people.
Since one day after the coup, the OAS (Organization of American States) labeled it an illegal regime and called for the “immediate and unconditional” restoration of President Zelaya and his government.
By once again welcoming an official delegation to Washington, the U.S. government would be obstructing the restoration of the legitimate government of President Zelaya and would be ‘legitimizing’ the illegal regime.
We ask everyone who cares about the right of the Hondurans to be free from a military-installed regime to call the State Department on Monday, at 202-647-4000, to ask for cancellation of any meeting in Washington with representatives of the illegal regime.
