  • US Drug War or Curacao Contact? DEA Agents, Framing Venezuela, Dirty Honduran Military Officers and Assassination of Honduras' Drug Czar
    By : January 10, 2010
    Strap on the seat belts – this is quite a ride. While this article may make you dizzy, you might want to file it away for future reference. Many, if not all, of the threads present here will surface again, especially regarding US aggression against Venezuela and the political twists and turns of a drug-saturated infrastructure in Honduras.

  • Honduran Journalist's Son Kidnapped

  • After 7 Months of NYT Pretending Honduran Resistance Doesn't Exist
    – a Picture

    By : January 10, 2010
    The NYT published a story today about the Honduran military officers charged with “abuse of power” for the abduction of President Zelaya which I have not copied here because, well, the charges serve to exonerate them of more serious charges such as summary executions, rapes, disappearances, illegal detention, etc. If you insist on reading the article, click here. / Had it not been for the Honduras solidarity blogosphere, few outside Honduras would know there is a huge Resistance movement that hit the streets on the morning of the coup on June 28 and has never stopped. Along with the article mentioned above, the NYT today also published the following picture of a Resistance march in Tegucigalpa. A little more light and a close-up of what is written on the placards would have beem nice. But, hey, any pic of the Honduran Resistance in the streets brightens my day. Hope it does the same for you. Here's to the brave people of Honduras!

  • Honduras: Video - Which Way?
    Audio - Ricardo Salgado discusses situation after the 'election'

    By : January 10, 2010
    In October, 2009, a delegation of human rights observers from Chicago visited Honduras to witness the popular resistance to the coup d'etat. We interviewed many leaders of the movement, and recorded abuses against them perpetrated by the coup regime and its military apparatus. This video is a short example of the spirit of the resistance by the Honduran people, which continues despite the fraudulent election that took place on November 29, 2009. Despite being boycotted by 63% of voters, the coup regime remains in power.

    On Friday 600 families were forcibly removed from their lands in Bajo Aguán, in Colón, in northern Honduras. As their crops and shacks were destroyed by 300 members of the Armed Forces and the National Police, the people fled and one news source reported that they fled through the palm plantations in the area and were hunted down by the government forces.

  • The Growth of the FNRP and the Perpetuation of the Dictatorship
    By : January 10, 2010
    The end-of-the year vacation is over and with it the undeclared truce that the National Resistance Front had allowed the dictatorship. The repression we suffered in December and the first days of January was harsh and painful, and although the prophylactic strategy is not yet over, it is clear that the fight goes on. The army, the death squads and all the regime's machinery of terror have been and will be incapable of stopping the Honduran people who continue fighting for their liberation. reserves the right to publish your email responses in whole or part.
