Zelaya urged Monday his followers, who arrived to
Nicaraguan city of Ocotal, to support him, to organize a "pacific resistance"
against the coup.
Zelaya's followers continued Tuesday arriving to Ocotal,
226 km far from north of Managua, to organize the people's resistance
against the coup in Honduras.
After one month since Zelaya was ousted and forced to
exile in Costa Rica, he established a camp some weeks ago in Nicaraguan border
with Honduras waiting to enter Honduran territory and recover his charge.
Zelaya's followers are in camps in Ocotal, near the
border with Honduras, as refugees because they are afraid of the Honduran
Zelaya appointed Carlos Eduardo Reina, son of former
president Carlos Reina, to direct the structure of the resistance for the
civilian forces against the coup-soldiers.
The resistance group will be formed by 20 people
among Zelaya's supporters. Zelaya said that during this time of resistance he
will not leave Nicaragua, because he is organizing thousands people to fight
against the coup.
Zelaya also expects to meet soon with relatives at
the Nicaraguan side, who have been given a special permit to cross the border.
