Danny Glover in Havana
Actor Danny Glover has joined Cuban officials and others who are calling for Honduran president Manuel Zelaya to be reinstated to his post. Glover wrote:
I urge all to support the citizens of Honduras in their demand that President Manuel Zelaya be restored immediately to his constitutionally elected post and authority as President of Honduras. It is imperative that citizens across the United States write and call upon President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to quickly execute every available influence to ensure that President Zelaya is safely returned to his post.
Your voices are urgently needed to encourage our government to exercise its influence to ensure that the Ambassadors of Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua who have been violently kidnapped are not harmed and are immediately safely returned.
The flowering of Participatory Democracy in Latin America has been ruthlessly assaulted by anti-democratic sectors of the Honduran elite in collusion with sectors of the armed forces. Their shameless violation of constitutional laws can not be allowed to take hold.
