Honduras Coup 2009
On Independence Day in Honduras, the National Coalition Against the Coup declared that they are seeking a path toward "real independence, both economic and social." They believe that the best way to achieve this is through a national assembly to rewrite their constitution. This runs contrary to most media reports which depict the crisis as a battle over the Presidency. On the contrary, Honduran Filmmaker Óscar Estrada tells the Real News that after years of elections and no gains, the people of Honduras are out to fundamentally change the state.

Produced by: Jesse Freeston
