|Graphic History of the Honduran Coup|
|Written by Dan Archer|
In the final part of this graphic history of the Honduran coup, originally published on Alternet and followed up on HuffPost, I focus on piecing together the evidence of the repression that went mostly undocumented in the wake of the Nov 29th Honduran elections. Despite the media's portrayal of a democratic transition to Porfirio Lobo's inauguration as president, the de facto government's use of violence and threats against resistance members should stand as an ominous augury, especially given its clear links to Lobo and his cabinet. Most troubling of all is the United States' involvement under the banner of promoting 'democracy,' a term that is being increasingly used as a pretext for supporting a regime whose sympathies correspond to the American agenda (be it CAFTA or alarmist left-wing conspiracies), regardless of popular feeling or their worrying record of human rights abuses.

Now is the moment to build barriers, to build walls and to fight against intolerance, against racism, sexism and globalisation, to fight vigorously against that. And to re-unite people.
