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.
