Excited supporters of democratically elected President Jose Manuel Zelaya Rosales celebrated his return to Honduras at New York City’s Solidarity Center on May 28. Participants at the event, mostly Hondurans, support the Honduran National Front for Popular Resistance and the FNRP’s ongoing struggle for Zelaya’s return and an end to political repression and economic exploitation in their country.
Speakers who addressed the meeting were Lucy Pagoada of Honduran Resistance USA; Hon. Carol Delgado, Consul General of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela; and Roberto Quesada, columnist for Tiempo, a daily newspaper published in Honduras.
Zelaya supporters viewed his historic return to Honduras for more than six hours via a live video Internet stream broadcast by the Telesur satellite network.
Honduran Resistance USA and the Latin America-Caribbean Solidarity Committee of the International Action Center hosted the event.
