Honduras to face trade sanctions unless democracy is restored, ITGLWF

Condemning the coup which has ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya, the Global Union representing workers in the textile, garment and footwear industries said that unless democracy is restored and the military returns to barracks Honduras should be isolated and global sanctions should be imposed on the country.

Said Neil Kearney, General Secretary of the International Textile, Garment and Leather Workers' Federation (ITGLWF): “People should resolve their differences within the country through peaceful democratic dialogue, but in the absence of such an approach sanctions should be considered.

“It is particularly regrettable that some elements of the Honduran business community, including the export sector, appear to support the overthrow of democracy”, said Mr. Kearney.

“This makes it all the more urgent that trade with Honduras be reviewed. With this in mind, the ITGLWF is calling on the UN and the OAS to consider the imposition of sanctions if democracy is not restored immediately.
