Honduras Coup - Day 117 - October 22, 2009
- Honduras Coup, Act V, Day 3
By phoenixwoman.wordpress.com : October 22, 2009
Score a major win for RAJ. RAJ did analysis (here and here) of a report by Norma C. Gutierrez of the Library of Congress's Law Library which pretended to justify the coup. Now, appearing in of all places Forbes Magazine(!), two legal heavyweights have refuted Gutierrez and supported RAJ on all key points:
- Republican Backers of Honduras Coup
By Matthew Berger - havanatimes.org : October 22, 2009
While negotiations stall between the ousted and de facto governments of Honduras on the issue of whether former president Manuel Zelaya will be reinstated prior to the country's elections next month, an increasingly relevant question is whether the international community would be willing to recognize the results of elections that occur under the unelected, interim government's watch.

By hondurascoup2009.blogspot.com : October 22, 2009
As published in La Tribuna, the latest "proposal" from the de facto regime, has been distributed at a press conference. / Apparently, it irritates the de facto regime that no one will agree they are a constitutional government; remember, what is offered here is intended for signature by Zelaya's representatives, who thus would be included in the "we" agreeing that the present claimed Executive branch is legitimate:

- Honduras Havoc: Was the presidential ouster illegal?
By Viviana Krsticevic and Juan Mendez - forbes.com : October 22, 2009
U.S. policymakers are currently debating the appropriate response to a coup that ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya from power June 28. But as they continue discussions on a way forward for the Latin American nation, it is essential they have all the facts straight. Note, then, a recent Law Library of Congress analysis regarding the legality of the removal of Zelaya. The report misunderstands several basic tenets of Honduran law.
- Coup's Impact on Honduran Women
By Margaret Knapke - fpif.org : October 22, 2009
Ms. Magazine's inaugural cover featured President Obama in Superman pose, ripping open his suit coat and dress shirt to reveal a T-shirt that proclaims: "This is what a feminist looks like." Photoshop tricks aside, Honduran women need this to be true. They need the Obama administration to fully grasp the plight of Honduran women and their families and act decisively on their behalf.
- Venezuela, Honduras, Peru, Ecuador "small" oversights and "big" lies
By Éric Toussaint - cadtm.org : October 22, 2009
It may be useful to assess the dangers of the systematically hostile attitude of the overwhelming majority of major European and North American media companies in relation to the current events taking place in Ecuador, Bolivia and Venezuela. This hostility is only matched by an embarrassed, complicit silence with regard to those involved in the putsch in Honduras or the repression enacted by the Peruvian army against the indigenous populations of the Amazon.

By Noel Manzanares Blanco - politicalaffairs.net : October 22, 2009
The results of the recently concluded 7th Summit of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-Peoples' Trade Agreement (ALBA-TCP) held in Cochabamba, Bolivia, show that it's possible to work for a new world economic order.
- Dialogue in Honduras
By weeksnotice.blogspot.com : October 22, 2009
Nothing says "we are committed to negotiation" like a) blasting pig grunting noises; and b) saying the main sticking point remains non-negotiable. Not to mention possibly illegal restrictions on freedom of assembly.
- How Can it be Legal to Revoke the Right Of Assembly?
By hondurascoup2009.blogspot.com : October 22, 2009
The Radio America website has the only news story I've found in Honduras about the new "law" explained by police spokesperson Danilo Orellana to the gathered press at the Presidential Palace in Tegucigalpa today. / To recap, the law requires anyone who wants to organize a public rally, march, or meeting, to notify the police 24 hours in advance, and such notification must indicate the reason for the gathering, the identity of those organizing the event, the start and end time for the event, and in the case of a march, the route to be taken. Gatherings on public roadways must not block traffic.
- Communique #30 of National Front of Resistance Against the Coup d'Etat
By hondurasresists.blogspot.com : October 22, 2009
We denounce the manipulative acts and delay tactics with which the de facto regime tries to buy time and get to the electoral farse of November 29th without having re-established the institutional order and without having returned to his post the legitimate President Manuel Zelaya Rosales...
