Published Nov 4, 2009 9:10 PM

New York—The Honduran ambassador to the United Nations, the Hon. Jorge Arturo Reina, and former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark participated in an event here on Oct. 27 in solidarity with the resistance in Honduras, which coalesced after a coup in that country deposed the elected president, Manuel Zelaya. The New York event featured members of the U.S. Delegation of Labor, Community and Clergy in Solidarity with the Honduran Resistance, who had traveled to Honduras and during their stay, from Oct. 7 to 11, met with activists there and participated in demonstrations at the Brazilian Embassy, where Zelaya and others were under siege by the army and police. A video of the delegation’s experiences in Honduras was shown. Each speaker stressed the urgency of the situation in Honduras and the need for international solidarity with the resistance there.
