Honduras: the popular resistance is close to victory

While the Honduran people were not seen as being particularly politicized, and US experts had not anticipated a lasting reaction against the coup, the opposite has taken place. The population has suddenly arisen, joining activist organisations in a united stance against the putchists. According to Arnold August, this phenomenon is evocative of the popular movements that rattled other states in the region in recent years bringing, without exception, revolutionary leaders to power. In his view, and barring an event that could stifle the mobilization, the retreat of the Honduran putchists is inexorable. But, in any event, US interventionism is once again backfiring against Washington.

Honduras’ Zelaya calls for “decisive offensive”

In Honduras, deposed Honduran president Manuel Zelaya has called on his followers to march on the capital Tegucigalpa on Monday, in what he called a “decisive offensive” against the country’s de-facto government.

On Saturday, three months after Mr Zelaya was deposed in a coup and forced to leave the country, thousands of Hondurans took to the streets to demonstrate against the current leaders.

Mr Zelaya, who returned unexpectedly to Honduras just under a week ago, has now taken refuge in the Brazilian embassy. The embassy has since been surrounded by government forces and its supplies of gas, water and electricity cut off.

The government has warned Brazil that action will be taken if, within the next ten days, it does not prevent Mr Zelaya from continuing his protest from within the embassy. The United Nations Security Council has warned the Honduran government not to use violence to remove Mr Zelaya from the building.

The Red Cross says the situation in the Brazilian embassy is indeed poor, but not serious. It added that it could neither confirm nor deny reports that the Honduran army had released a toxic gas into the building.

26th August, 2009

Dans notre édition du 29 juin 2009, Thierry Meyssan indiquait que le SouthCom avait organisé le renversement du président Zelaya au Honduras [1]. L’édition française de son article indiquait en outre, en légende d’une photo (malheureusement absente de certaines versions étrangères) que la base US de Soto Cano est dirigée par le le colonel Richard A. Juergens, lequel aurait supervisé en 2004 le renversement du président haïtien Jean-Bertrand Aristide, selon le même scénario.

22nd July, 2009

The mainstream media has once again dropped the ball on a key aspect of the ongoing story in Honduras: the U.S. airbase at Soto Cano, also known as Palmerola. Prior to the recent military coup d’etat President Manuel Zelaya declared that he would turn the base into a civilian airport, a move opposed by the former U.S. ambassador. What’s more Zelaya intended to carry out his project with Venezuelan financing.

Fidel Castro: A Nobel Prize for Mrs Clinton

REFLECTIONS OF FIDEL
A Nobel Prize for Mrs. Clinton
Havana.  July 24, 2009

THE interminable document read out yesterday by Nobel laureate Oscar Arias is far worse than the seven points of the act of rendition that he proposed on July 18. He did not communicate with international opinion via a Morse code. He spoke before TV cameras that were broadcasting his image and all the details of the human face, which generally has as many variables as a person’s fingerprints. Any intention of lying can be easily discovered. I was observing him closely. Read the rest of this entry »

What Should Be Demanded From The United States

What Should Be Demanded From The United States
Reflections by Comrade Fidel Castro
20/7/2009 Cuba news Agency
The meeting in Costa Rica didn’t, nor could it, lead to peace. The people of Honduras are not at war, it’s just the perpetrators of the coup who are using weapons against the people. One should demand that they cease their war against the people. That meeting between Zelaya and the coup was only good for discrediting the constitutional president and wearing away at the energies of the Honduran people. Read the rest of this entry »
