After a brief holiday interlude, the Honduran resistance went back to the streets with renewed energy and commitment. On Jan. 7, 15,000 people marched from the Polytechnic University to the National Congress in Tegucigalpa. This time, beside demanding the return to office of their legitimate president, Manuel Zelaya Rosales, the resistance’s demands included the continuation of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Americas (ALBA) – since de facto president Roberto Micheletti had sent a bill to Congress for the withdrawal of Honduras from the ALBA – and the refusal of amnesty for crimes perpetrated since the coup on June 28. Both were items scheduled to be discussed at the Congress’ session that day.
