Troops seize community in Honduras: fear of massacre

More than three thousand troops and policemen have taken over the peasant communities of Bajo Aguan in the department of Colón.

Civic organizations have issued an alert that a massacre may be imminent. In spite of the attempts by the organized peasants to negotiate with the fascist government, this has only replied with repression and murders.

The peasant communities achieved agreements (agrarian reform) with the democratic government of ousted president Manuel Zelaya that allowed them to labor the lands without paying feudal tributes to the landowners. The current fascist government, supported by the USA, is trying to revert this situation returning the lands to rich and seem to have no problem in going into a murder rampage if they deem necessary.
