We have been following with concern, the situation that has been created in Honduras after the elections of November 26. We reject the repression against popular protests, we regret the loss of human lives and we call to respect the will of the people. The complicit silence of the OAS and its Secretary General on this situation is striking. We reject interference in internal affairs and demand the right to peace and development of our peoples as expressed in the postulates of the Proclamation of Latin America and the Caribbean as a Zone of Peace.
