Yesterday morning it was confirmed that Mel Zelaya was in the capital Tegucigalpa. He made an appeal to the people to come out to protect him. The masses responded by the tens of thousands. The next few hours will be decisive. The balance of forces is on the side of the masses. They can deal the last blow to the coup regime and start the building of a new political regime based on the organisation of the masses.

Seven weeks after the coup against Honduran president Mel Zelaya, the national resistance continues to mobilise tens of thousands of workers, youth and peasants in a movement that repression has not been able to smash. Meanwhile diplomatic manoeuvres of all kinds are continuing in attempt to find a “negotiated solution” which saves the coup from being overthrown by a popular insurrection.

Here we publish a picture gallery of the mass demonstration at the Toncontin airport in Tegucigalpa on Sunday when people broke through police lines trying to make sure Zelaya's plane could land. The photographs were taken by a Nicaraguan comrade who travelled to Honduras on Friday as part of a solidarity delegation.
