.Honduras has been taken over.

Extreme instability and political unrest have forced the people of Honduras to take to the streets in protest. Amnesty International researchers have been on the ground since the coup took place and have documented wide spread police beatings of students, reporters, political leaders and other activists. Women and media workers have been particularly vulnerable to the violence. We can only expect that the excessive use of police and military force will intensify unless order in soon restored. 

In this instance where political implications are huge and the human rights impact is tremendous,there is no time to waste. While President Obama’s words have added much-needed pressure to the debate — labeling the overthrow as illegal and recognizing the “terrible precedent” it would set if unchallenged — they have not been enough to end the ongoing crackdown on human rights.
