Casa Alianza Honduras:

Is grateful to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights

(OHCHR) for its statement.

Calls for the remaining human rights organisations and organisations for international cooperation to adopt a firm stance towards the current regime in order to stop the repression of peaceful demonstrations, which has resulted in the murder of six children.

Also demands an end to the impunity with which members of the army, PMOP, National Police and death squads operate.
