Democracy Now!: Honduras Coup 07-15-2009

Ah ha! The multinationals like Hanes and Fruit of the Loom are supporting the coup in Honduras. The elites and upper class in Honduras are in favor of the new president. This is about the garment industry and keeping the profits high there.

Supporters of the coup in Honduras have begun hiring advisers and lobbyists with close ties to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in an attempt to strengthen support in Washington for the coup. A Honduran business group has hired lobbyist Lanny Davis, who served as White House counsel for President Bill Clinton. The coup government has also hired Bennet Ratcliff, a public relations specialist with ties to former President Bill Clinton.
