Hondurans Demand a National Assembly

TEGUCIGALPA - The National Front of Popular Resistance of Honduras (FNRP) will carry out demonstrations all over the country from Tuesday on in order to call for a Constituent Assembly.

Demonstrators will march from El Loarque square, in Comayagüela, to the headquarters of the National Congress, where they will also demand full guarantees for the return of president Manuel Zelaya, ousted by the last June 28 coup d'etat.

According to the FNRP coordinator, Juan Barahona, similar demonstrations will be staged at all the country's departments, in order to recollect one million 250,000 signatures to demand reforms for the current Constitution.

The Constitution, in force since 1982, has seven articles that cannot be changed, thus preventing to carry out deep changes to end with poverty and inequality.

Soldiers wearing hoods, and in conspiracy with the oligarchy, kidnapped Zelaya and took him out the country by force when he decided to call for a referendum on that issue.

Patricia Rodas, the foreign minister during Zelaya's government, has insisted that it is necessary to call for a national Constituent Assembly to reinstall the institutional order in the country.
