Protest at Palmerola Air Base Marks 2nd Anniversary of Military Takeover in Honduras

On the morning of June 28th, around 200 people gathered a few miles away from the entrance to Palmerola Air Base, which is located in Honduras but used by the United States Air Force. The marchers proceeded towards the main gate to denounce the US military base due to the US's military presence and its role in the overthrow of Honduras' democratically elected government on June 28th, 2009. The plane that sent Honduras' president Manuel Zelaya into exile on that day flew from the capital Tegucigalpa to Palmerola Air Base before continuing in the opposite direction to Costa Rica.
