HAVANA, Cuba, Jul 31 (acn) While the Honduran army and police's repression of peaceful demonstrations against the coup gets harsher, constitutional president Manuel Zelaya is preparing in Managua a campaign to return to his post.

Cuban News Agency
Zelaya announced that a popular pacific army made up of his supporters is being organized to try to revert the coup d’état that ousted him from his position one month ago, reported Granma newspaper.

In Ocotal, Nicaragua, President Zelaya said there is a group of Honduran soldiers and officers who are not happy with the military coup.

During a meeting with hundreds of supporters, Zelaya revealed that he has reports of the existence of army sectors in Honduras that reject the way in which the military leaders have led the armed forces into a sacrifice.

Meanwhile, in Tegucigalpa, for the sixth consecutive day the Venezuelan embassy continues to be protected by members of the National Resistance Front against the Coup d'état.

The activists keep on watch shifts to protect the lives of Venezuelan diplomats and to obstruct any attempts by the de facto regime led by Roberto Micheletti to violently expel all the staff of the diplomatic mission.
