Resistance Demonstrations Continue

100 members of the resistance for Zelaya have arrived in La Colonia Torocagua, and are holding a demonstration. Police are in the area to ensure it remains peaceful.

Approximately 150 protesters for former President Manuel Zelaya also took over the North Boulevard, near the Honduran Social Security Institute this morning. Preventive Police agents and Cobra Command, arrived in the area to ensure order and to allow the free passage of vehicles and people.

“Police established a safety area where supporters of the former president could demonstrate without creating chaos,” said Commissioner Miguel Perez. “There is no restriction, the police are only establishing a safety zone, both for them and for people passing through this area,” he stated.

Perez reminded the press that citizens who wish to make any kind of demonstrations must apply for a special permit from the National Police in order to ensure the safety of protesters and other citizens.

    This past weekend, more supporters chose to leave the embassy after 28 straight days. Reports vary on the number, between 40 and 100.

    Has anybody noticed that the news reports about the embassy now claim 30 supporters with him, not 60 or 70?
