VELIZ CATALAN, Néstor. Ten Years after the Coup D'état: Rupture of a Popular National Process and Security of the Right in Honduras. Anuario de Estudios Centroamericanos [online]. 2019, vol.45, pp.69-94. ISSN 2215-4175.

This article analyzes the causes of the rupture of the national pupil process led by Manuel Zelaya in June 2009. For this, in the first section, a historical contextualization of the forces involved in it, the right and left, to the addition of Chavismo, expanding in the region since the end of the 20th century. An interpretation of the coup is also presented as an expression of antagonistic forces and political blocs, whose confrontation was updated with the turn of Zelaya to the field of influence of Venezuelan Chavismo. This political-ideological current gave rise to ''zelayism'' or a Honduran form of left-wing populism, which constituted the ''enemy'' to defeat by the right.

Keywords : backing; coupd’état; Honduras; rupture; political history.
