Watch the excellent documentary "We are not afraid: Inside the coup in Honduras" (Quien dijo miedo: Honduras de un golpe)

"We are not afraid" charts the struggle of the Honduran people against the coup that overthrew the democratically-elected President, Manuel Zelaya, and their magnificent resistance against the military dictatorship that was imposed on them. The documentary is the work of Katia Lara, director, and Carlos del Valle, producer, through the company Terco Producciones.
René Amador is a Honduran amateur actor who appeared on television spots promoting the referendum on convening the National Constituent Assembly in Honduras. On June 28th, 2009, instead of a referendum, there was a brutal coup d’état: the army abducted President Manuel Zelaya and had him flown abroad. Along with thousands of other Hondurans, René joined the National Resistance Front against the Coup d’ État. An unprecedented Honduras arises: a people who resist despite media bias, violence and death, and take to the streets to stand up for their rights. This is their story.
