Declaration of Feminists in Resistance of Honduras

 

June 28, 2010 marks the one-year anniversary of the military coup d’etat in Honduras, which ousted a democratically elected president, and launched brutal repression against opponents of the coup, who form part of a strong popular resistance movement.  Numerous violations of women’s human rights have been documented by feminists in Honduras since the coup, which continue today amidst the ongoing violent oppression

 

Declaration of Feminists in Resistance of Honduras:

One year after the military coup

June 28, 2010

  1. With the coup, femicide and violence against women escalated to levels of serious concern, in response to which the government of Porfirio Lobo Sosa, (a continuation of the coup), has not taken steps to investigate the facts and therefore the [femicides and violence] remain in complete impunity.

  2. The escalation against freedom of expression is such that in less than three months nine journalists have been killed and several have been forced into exile. To date none of these crimes have been solved and those responsible have not been punished.

  3. The deterioration of the legitimacy of the [public] institutions has revealed that at least ten magistrates of the Supreme Court, participated in the dismissal of five judges of the Courts in San Pedro de Sulá for their critical positions against violations of law and order.

  1. Murders, persecution, arbitrary detention and illegitimate legal actions have been carried out against several farmers in the Lower Aguan region.

  1. Given the brutal events June 28, 2009, the Lobo government has organized a Truth Commission whose legitimacy has been questioned as it responds primarily to concerns of high level officials [supporters of the coup].

Therefore, we demand:

  1. Of all women's organizations in Honduras and the world to join our voices one year after the coup, demanding respect for life, and condemning the femicide and violence against women in our country

  1. Firm and strong solidarity with the struggle of Hondurans in the defense of their rights and the reconstruction of the rule of law that respects human rights by rejecting the murder, detention and torture of Hondurans for demonstrating against the coup.

  1. Solidarity support for the [Alternative} Truth Commission, designed as an alternative (to the government Truth Commission) in order to clarify the facts, and recognize and punish violations of human rights suffered by the Honduran people.

  1. 4. Strengthening of the organizational structures mentioned above who are working to end the repression suffered by the Honduran people since the military coup of June 28, 2009 for a peaceful struggle for the restoration of democracy.

    For freedom and respect for the life of the people in resistance

    Neither coups (golpes) or beatings (golpes) of women!

    For the empowerment of women and all oppressed!
