Honduras under state of siege
Venezuela: Honduran congressman Cesar Ham denounced his country has
been under a permanent state of siege in Honduras after the June 28
coup, and termed the de facto government headed by Roberto Micheletti a
dictatorship for its continuous repression against the people.
"Despite that situation, the Honduras people is withholding," Ham
said in a phone call to Venezolana de Television state-owned channel.
The lawmaker is hiking through mountains paths in an attempt to join
ousted President Manuel Zelaya, who has set camp on the Honduras border
"We are fighting for our children, families, friends, and the whole
Honduran people," he noted.
"It is not possible Honduras is living a military dictatorship where
the right to protest is virulently repressed as Micheletti's
dictatorship has done," Ham stressed.
On his journey to the Nicaraguan boder, Ham is accompanied by
Venezuelan filmmaker Angel Palacios in the tour of the mountains.
