New York- The National Alliance of Latin American and Caribbean Communities (NALACC) continue to emphatically denounce the increasing repression against the Honduran people in the wake of the coup d’état that occurred on June 28th in Honduras.

The de facto government continues to impose restrictions that violate the basic human rights of the Honduran people. International observers are receiving reports of government violence against protesters, civil society leaders and opposition parties that opposed the coup.

The delegation of Honduran civil society representatives sponsored by NALACC, speak out about their firsthand experiences confronting the de facto regime and deliver an appeal for the restoration of constitutional order and respect for human rights. The delegation is now in New York and will be visiting Boston and Chicago.

NALACC is a network of immigrant-led organizations working to improve the quality of life in their communities, in the United States, as well as in their countries of origin. Visit us on the web at  http://www.nalacc.org
