Cesar Silva, a reporter for state-run Channel 8 television, tried to go on the air to denounce the coup, but was censored. Instead, he took to the streets with his car and a loudspeaker to broadcast news of the overthrow, which was orchestrated by Honduras' traditional oligarchy.

Next Monday June 28th will mark a year since the ruling class of Honduras in conjunction with the Honduran Army and U.S. Imperialism overthrew the legitimate and democratically elected government of President Manuel Zelaya via a military coup d'etat.
