Tell Chlopak, Leonard, Schechter & Associates to Cease its Propaganda Operations for the Honduran Coup Regime
On June 28 the democratically elected President of Honduras Mr Manuel Zelaya was kidnapped and exiled at gunpoint. Swiftly after, a coup regime led by Mr Roberto Micheletti, illegally grabbed power. Since that time there have been hundreds of human rights violations at the hands of the military and police.
The coup regime of Honduras has hired the services of Chlopak, Leonard, Schechter & Associates to clean up its image in the U.S. It is outrageous that in this day and age a US lobbying firm can take up the case of an egregiously violent and repressive regime and serve as a channel to U.S. politicians, newsmakers, and commentators. Chlopak's implicit endorsement of the regime's record of human rights violations is simply unacceptable. It requires a clear and concise response from Hondurans and supporters in the DC area.
