(CNN Spanish) - The former president of Honduras Manuel Zelaya summoned his followers on Friday to march through the streets of Tegucigalpa in support of Bolivia's ex-president Evo Morales, who is in exile in Mexico after he has resigned from the presidency of his country.
At the demonstration, the ex-president's followers carried flags of Bolivia and the photograph of Evo Morales. They also asked for his soon return to the South American country.
Former Governor Manuel Zelaya, overthrown by a coup in 2009, said that Evo Morales was the first president who condemned the incident against him. Zelaya called on Latin American countries to join forces with Morales and ask for the return of democracy to Bolivia.
"Today we have the responsibility to condemn this blow to democracy and also demand the return, in conditions of freedom and respect for his life, of the Bolivian leader Evo Morales to his homeland," said Zelaya.
Return to democracy that has begun the interim president of that country, Jeanine Áñez with the project to call new elections and dialogue with opponents.
