Académicos presionan al Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU sobre crisis en Honduras

Querido Presidente Obama,

Le urgimos, en su capacidad como presidente temporal del Consejo de Seguridad de la Naciones Unidas, apoyar una reunión de emergencia del Consejo de Seguridad para tratar la crisis política y derechos humanos en Honduras.

Como usted sabe, la situación en Honduras es muy peligrosa para tanto los hondureños como para las instituciones democráticas hondureñas. La mañana del martes, fuerzas policiales y militares dispersaron violentamente miles de manifestantes que pasaron la noche enfrente de la embajada brasileña para apoyar pacíficamente al expulsado Presidente Manuel Zelaya seguidamente a su retorno a Honduras. Cañones de agua, gases lacrimógenos, balas de goma, golpizas, y de acuerdo a algunos reportes, bala viva fue usada para desalojar la multitud, resultando en números heridos de acuerdo a reportes de prensa independiente. Al menos dos protestantes han sido asesinados de acuerdo a la policía hondureña, y un gran número de protestantes han sido detenidos (el Ministro del Interior de facto reconoció 174 detenciones), algunos de ellos son retenidos en estadios es un recuerdo escalofriante del golpe de estado de Chile de 1973. El Lunes, los ataques violentos del régimen a la multitud siguió con una imposición de toque de queda, originalmente por 16 horas, pero después extendido al Martes y Miércoles.

El régimen golpista ha, repetidamente, cortado energía eléctrica, agua y servicio telefónico a la embajada brasileña, y ha montado un cordón sólido de seis cuadras alrededor de esta. Ha ubicado francotiradores y está cargando con música a todo volumen al edificio en un claro esfuerzo para forzar al Presidente Zelaya abandonar las premisas de la Embajada.

Además, los pocos despachos independientes de noticias que continúan operando en Honduras están reportando incidentes similares de represión violenta en otras partes del país, particularmente en la segunda ciudad más grande de Honduras, San Pedro Sula donde manifestantes pacíficos han sido atacados y detenidos por la policía. Policía y tropas continúan golpeando brutalmente a los manifestantes en una táctica documentada y condenada por Amnistía Internacional.

El régimen ha suspendido las garantías constitucionales de liberta de reunión y de prensa, y ha, repetidamente, bloqueando la señal de transmisión de despachos de Radio Globo y Canal 36. Mientras tanto, el régimen le apunta a los grupos de derechos humanos, el monitor de derechos humanos Comité de Familiares de Detenidos Desaparecidos en Honduras (COFADEH) reportó que sus oficinas han sido atacadas con gases lacrimógenos.

Estas violaciones de derechos humanos han sido denunciadas por organizaciones de derechos humanos incluida la Comisión Interamericana de Derechos Humanos de la Organización de Estados Americanos (OEA), Human Right Watch, y Amnistía Internacional.

El régimen continúa desairando todas las llamadas de la comunidad internacional para una solución a la crisis y al respeto de los derechos humanos. Es altamente probable, entonces, que escalará la represión contra los seguidores de Zelaya, y violaría también los derechos del mismo Zelaya y otros en la embajada brasileña en un despliegue de fuerza. Un funcionario del régimen golpista apareció afirmando que la ley internacional no les impediría allanar la Embajada.

Es importante resaltar que algunos de los peores actos de violencia del régimen contra los simpatizantes de Zelaya durante los últimos tres meses has sido llevados a cabo durante los toques de queda – especialmente cuando el régimen ha desarticulado demostraciones y marchas. Bajo las circunstancias actuales, se espera que el régimen confronte nuevas demostraciones pacíficas con violencia brutal, resultando en nuevas muertes, golpizas, violaciones, y detenciones, tal y como grupos internacionales de derechos humanos han documentado desde que el golpe se llevo a cabo el 28 de junio.

La OEA y la Asamblea General de la ONU has pasado previamente resoluciones el retorno a la democracia y orden constitucional de Honduras, pero estas no eran vinculantes. Ahora que Zelaya a regresado a Honduras, y el régimen de facto ha respondido a su mera presencia con un asalto a sus seguidores y acoso severo de la misma Embajada, es el momento de actuar del Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU para forzar a la dictadura a respetar libertades y derechos humanos básicos, incluyendo libertad de reunión y de prensa y a aceptar la restauración del gobierno electo.
