Honduran Laborers Go on Strike

The demonstrations have escalated in Honduras: three major labor unions are planning to strike today, adding to the brutal demonstrations in support of the ousted President Jose Manuel Zelaya. It's estimated that 30,000 private and public sector workers will participate in the strikes. Said Oscar Garcia, vice president of the water union: "It will be an indefinite strike. We don't recognize this new government imposed by the oligarchy and we will mount our campaign of resistance until President Manuel Zelaya is restored to power."
