Honduran opposition protesters take to the streets

December 15, 2017

Supporters of the leftist opposition in Honduras blocked streets in various cities around that country on Friday, despite political repression, to celebrate the “victory” of their candidate, Salvador Nasralla, in the country’s elections on Nov. 26.

In the capital, supporters of Alliance of Opposition to the Dictatorship set up rock barricades, set fire to tires and sticks in the roadways, and then moved to other locations to evade the police.

Police and military officials put out the fires and moved the barricades so cars could pass, AFP journalists observed.

Almost three weeks after the election, the Honduran Supreme Elections Tribunal (TSE) has not defined the winner, although the final results gave a slight advantage to President Juan Orlando Hernández of the right-wing National Party.
