leadership announced mobilisations, road blockings and strike at national level to demand the putschists to give up power.
Once again today the 15th of July 2009, the starting point of the social movements was the Pedagogic University Francisco Morazán that by the way was taken over by the student front from this organization; later on, the protest moved towards the Institute of the Woman, because at the time the press conference was taking place, during the marching route, it was informed, that a group of feminist colleagues are maintaining this institution takeover since the 13th of July 2009 and they are in opposition to the nomination of the new director. They have been attacked and beaten by members of the national police who introduced under a strong military force the newly nominated director of the Institute Mrs María Martha Díaz, repudiated by the feminist movements; because this woman years ago was an activist of the feminist movements and they intervened in order for her not to be imprisoned, because of various accusations done at the time, but it seems that this woman forgot all the support she received from her colleagues and now she is on the same side as the putschists and she is attacking her colleagues from the struggle.

Sisters and brothers of the World,
I write this testimony, with my eyes full of tears and a sadden heart after an intensive day of struggle with my sisters and brothers of Honduras.
I am a woman from a humble family. I am a peasant. I have gained my militancy and class consciousness along with the peasants who work every day under the hot sun, and who see no future for their sons and daughters who have to migrate to other countries seeking better living conditions because in our country, Honduras, the bipartisan political system (Liberals and Nationalists have shared the power for more than 100 years) the majority live in extreme poverty, neglected, without access to health, to a dignify home, without access to a piece of land because the national oligarchy owns the whole country and have pushed 90 per cent of the population into extreme poverty and social exclusion.

Urgent call to U.S. social movements
The arrogant rejection of the negotiation efforts by OAS by the perpetrators of the Military Coup, has complicated the situation in Honduras. At the end of the 72 hours ultimatum issued by the OAS to restore the presidency of Manuel Zelaya, the usurpers have intensified the repression against the thousands of Hondurans who have taken the streets of Tegucigalpa and the main towns, to protest against the Military Coup, and especially against the social leaders of the movement. The usurpers have tightened the control of the media to hide form the world the massive acts of protest against the Military Coup.
The resistance and the struggle of the Honduran people have increased in the last three days. Yesterday, in the peoples’ march to repudiate the coup, approximately 150 thousand people participated.
