Hondurans march in solidarity with Egyptian uprising

The National Popular Resistance Front (FNRP) marched in the Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa, Feb. 4 in solidarity with the protest movement in Egypt. Under the slogan “Down with the imperialist pharaohs of the world, long live the people’s uprising in Egypt,” the marchers blocked traffic on a major thoroughfare. (El Heraldo, Tegucigalpa, Feb. 4)

Jan. 28 also saw FNRP protests in Tegucigalpa, as President Porfirio Lobo completed his first year in office. More than 100 countries now recognize Honduras, despite the June 28, 2009 coup d’etat that removed President Manuel Zelaya from office. The FNRP is demanding no recognition of Lobo, and calling for implementation of constitutional reforms proposed by Zelaya before his ouster. (La Tribuna, Tegucigalpa, AP, Jan. 28)
