Ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya on Tuesday praised the ongoing peaceful resistance in his country to the government that forced him from office.

At a joint press conference with Mexican President Felipe Calderon, Zelaya called the resistance "unheard-of" and thanked the Mexican leader for his support.

"I don't believe in Talion's law of an eye for an eye. I take a pacifist position," said the deposed Honduran leader.

Speaking on the steps of Mexico's presidential palace, Los Pinos, Zelaya said that his camp in Ocotal, a town on the Nicaraguan border with Honduras, was a symbol of peaceful resistance, adding that that his followers did not respond to violence from Honduras' post-coup government with violence, but responded with peaceful means.

He also noted that his movement was based on article three of Honduras' Constitution, which stipulates that "no one should obey a government that takes office by force of arms." "Insurgency is aright enshrined in the Constitution and I am calling for a peaceful insurgency," he stressed.
