In June 2009, a coup took place in Honduras.
According to the Truth Commission, 
which investigated over the past three years,
both the regime of Roberto Micheletti 
and the current administration of Porfirio Lobo 
have used and still use terror 
as a means of social control.
Hundreds 
of human rights defenders 
were killed 
or physically attacked 
during the coup.
To counter 
this policy of terror, 
supporters of human rights defenders seek 
protection strategies.
