*Communiqué No. 35 of National Resistance Front Against the Coup d'Etat*

The National Front of Resistance Against the Coup d'Etat communicates:
1. We alert the international community and human rights defense 
organizations about the growing repression against, and persecution of, 
the organized people. The Committee for the Defense of Human Rights in 
Honduras (CODEH) just released a report that warns about preparations by 
the Armed Forces of the State to carry out terrorist actions, making 
them appear as if they were carried out by the Resistance movement, and 
in this way justify the massive killing of people linked to the National 
Front of Resistance Against the Coup d'Etat.

2. We denounce the mobilization of military forces across the entire 
national territory, with arms and campaign equipment, which goes beyond 
any previous preparation for an electoral process. This build-up by the 
Armed Forces includes the hiring of mercenaries, including a large 
contingent of reservists, and the reorganization of hospitals and 
clinics for medical attention to the military and police involved in the 
acts of violence against the population.

3. We want to make clear that the announced "stepping down" from power 
of dictator Micheletti that is supposed to happen from November 25 to 
December 2 is just a maneuver to hide the totalitarian role of the 
de-facto regime and the Armed Forces, which have set up an illegitimate, 
illegal and fraudulent electoral process.

4. We condemn the threats and intimidation against the various media 
that tell the truth about the situation in our country, and that just 
today witnessed a new episode in censorship with the interruption of the 
signal of Channel 36.

5. We reiterate that under this anti-democratic and repressive coup 
regime it is impossible to hold free elections.

6. We call all the Resistance Fronts nationally and all the committed 
organizations and solidarity organizations outside the country to 
increase their security measures and to be ready to denounce any 
violations of human rights by the Dictatorship.
