Zelaya: US Subverting Honduran Democracy

HeadlineAug 26, 2010

The ousted former Honduran President Manuel Zelaya is renewing criticism of the Obama administration’s support for his successor, Honduran President Porfirio Lobo. Speaking to Democracy Now! en Español/in Spanish, Zelaya said US backing for Lobo is subverting Honduran democracy.

Manuel Zelaya: “If the United States were not protecting Lobo and protecting those responsible for murders and crimes that are committed in Honduras, it would be much easier to deal with Lobo and the group that is running the country. But with US support, it is almost impossible to communicate with them, because they are opposed to my return and opposed to the establishment of a democratic system of competition. They do not want to compete. They simply want to impose their ideas on Honduras.”
