Denounce the Coup, End US Military Aid and Close the SOA
The Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS) joins with the international community in denunciation of the military coup in Honduras.
We join with all who call for an immediate end to the violence and repression against the people of Honduras who are resisting. We express our solidarity with the Honduran trade unions and all democratic forces waging a heroic defense of democracy against the military coup.
We call on the U.S. government - the White House, State Department and Members of Congress - to denounce unambiguously the coup and call for the immediate return of the democratically elected President of Honduras, withhold recognition of the coup leaders, and cut all military aid until democracy is restored. We urge all to contact their Member of Congress, the U.S. State Department and White House to convey this message.
We also join with others in calling on the U.S. Congress and the White House to close the School of the Americas (renamed the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation) in Ft. Benning Georgia, the training ground for the Honduran coup leaders.
