On Wednesday, 1 July 2009, the Honduran Congress announced a suspension of citizens’ rights in Honduras for 24 hours.

Citizens may not organize or otherwise congregate for any reason, and homes may be entered by government forces without permit. The curfew that has been in place since Sunday has been extended for 6 more days.

Supporters of the resistance maintain their commitment to publicly protest the coup and demand the return of President Zelaya and democratic rule.

There is a foreseen escalation in aggression from the government and army against the resistance movement.

Other sources from inside Honduras report that that campesinos and indigenous peoples from rural areas continue marching on foot towards the capital to join the protests in Tegucigalpa, in which tens of thousands of people are already participating.
