Democracy Now: Thousands of Hondurans March in Anti-Coup Protest


In Honduras, thousands of supporters of the ousted former President Manuel Zelaya took to the streets Thursday for a march in the capital Tegucigalpa. It was the first major demonstration since the inauguration of Honduran President Porfirio Lobo last month. Protesters called for constitutional reforms, payments of back wage to teachers, and an end to attacks on Zelaya supporters. The National People’s Resistance Front says one of its supporters was shot to death this week at her home in front of her two young children. The victim, Claudia Brizuela, was the daughter of a radio host critical of the coup that ousted Zelaya last year.
