The people of Tegucigalpa were joyful thinking that they had finally gotten their message out to the world. It was only later that they found that CNN only showed a small video with the volume lowered so that their speeches and songs were not heard.

the third largest city in Honduras

The message that the young people of La Ceiba had for CNN, who didn't come, was to ask the world to find out the facts before they judge Honduras. "We aren't in favor of any political party; what we want and we demand is peace in our country and unity among Hondurans," said Luís Hernández. Roque Ardón said that the the people should defend the country against interference by the Organization of American States and the UN who have already judged us without listening to us first.

The parade in La Ceiba was blocks long and completely peaceful. It was protected by numerous police who were able to reroute it without incident after pro-Zelaya protesters became threatening.

Mayor Allan Ramos said, "Today, Honduras has lived historic moments. Every Honduran is called to defend our country in a civic and conscientious manner, like we did with this march." "We are making a call to the international community to see that Honduras is firm and united in defense of the Constitution," he said.

Quintín Soriano, Mayor of Choluteca, said he had never seen so many people marching in Choluteca before. "The world better not confuse us with Cuba or Venezuela because here what we want is peace and democracy. It isn't the government of Roberto Micheletti or the liberal party; it is the pueblo that demands this tranquility.

The theme of these rallies is Peace and Democracy, but since CNN would not show you their other messages, I will.

Honduran anti-Zelaya protestersArmed Forces, Thank you!

I know this is hard to believe for the people who have read the misinformation on the internet. The military are protecting people from the riotous pro-Zelaya protesters (some of whom have been imported from Nicaragua and El Salvador) who have injured people, attacked journalists, started fires, blocked bridges, done a lot of property damage with vandalism, and continue to attack the soldiers with rocks while the soldiers have shown incredible restraint. The La Ceiba police chief said that crime (which is a major concern of the Honduran people that was never addressed properly by Mel Zelaya) in the past 5 days has been a fraction of what it has been in the past.

Please help to get the truth out. Honduras is a victim, not of our military, but of an organized Venezuelan disinformation campaign.

Viva Honduras!
