  • History is Dangerous
    By : September 18, 2009
    But money doesn't tell the whole story of what has been lost in the takeover of the Ministry of Culture by the de facto regime, and their dismissal of the Director of the Institute. A closer look at the nature of the projects that have now been suspended gives insight into the priorities of the coup regime by showing us what they do not think is worth supporting, or even think is so dangerous to the status quo and the maintenance of power by a small elite that they merited removing the main advocate for these projects from his office.

  • My father has been punished for helping Honduras
    By Xiomara Zelaya - : September 18, 2009
    Since his election, my father has promoted the idea of "citizen power": the involvement of citizens in the decision-making process. He promoted the Citizen Participation Law, giving the people the right to use surveys, plebiscites and referendums to participate in decision-making. From the beginning, the media criticised his ideas, proposals and actions. Sometimes they called him mad. They accused him of ignorance. They branded his government ineffective. Later they called him populist, and now they say he is a communist and fugitive from justice.

  • NPR Provides a Soapbox for Honduras' Coup Regime
    By : September 18, 2009
    In spite of NPR's magical map of Central America, they do know where Honduras is - and, like Lanny cha-ching Davis, they certainly know how to spread all the coup government's talking points. The report on Wednesday's ATC was purportedly meant to illustrate the economic toll that sanctions against the coup regime are having in Honduras, but after a cursory look at that, NPR's Jason Beaubien features a glowing assessment of the coup president and claims, contrary to fact, that the failure to resolve the crisis in Honduras is the fault of both the coup government and the ousted Zelaya government.

  • Racist coup government: Shut down the Garífuna Community Hospital of Ciriboya
    By : September 18, 2009

  • The Militarization of Latin America: Obama Already ‘Ahead of Bush': La Jornada, Mexico
    By William Kern - : September 18, 2009
    The proven capacity of the region's governments to deal with or act against imperial dictates, like the Yankee-Uribista [U.S.-Colombia] aggression against Ecuador or the attempted separatist coup d'état against Evo Morales, constitute a serious and unprecedented setback for U.S. hegemony in the region. This seems to have dragged the dominant groups in the U.S. to conclude that they've lost the political battle for the Latin American masses and are left with no solution but to back with force the (few) allied states they have left, or as a last resort, use its own forces.

  • Honduras Resistance Still on Streets
    By : September 18, 2009
