  • Live Blog: President Zelaya Has Returned to Honduras
    By : September 21, 2009
    As occurred during the first hours of the June 28 coup d'etat, the Internet signals of Channel 36 and Radio Globo are blocked, as is cell phone service in the capital (I've yet to confirm that there is any Internet or cell phone access in Tegucigalpa at all right now - it all appears to be jammed - but we do have reporter Belén Fernández reporting right this moment from that city and the information blockade will be broken soon enough.) We can take that extreme of censorship as additional confirmation that the President has indeed returned and the illegitimate coup regime is panicking.

  • Radio Globo Announces That Zelaya Has Returned!
    By : September 21, 2009
    They won't say where he is, but Radio Globo is dead serious. And, predictably, the stream crashes. Over on Channel 36, there is a mass with Father Tamayo. No indication that they have this news. I milk out a few words from Radio Globo before it crashes, and it sounds as if he is in a building, presumably in the capital or a major city, and Radio Globo is calling for citizens to surround the building and protect him. OK: they say it's a UN building and that this was done with a plan by the UN. TeleSur has no video, but Hugo Chavez is talking to Zelaya and apparently Dona Xiomara.

  • Panama Ready for Honduran Regime Elections, Obama Chanels Ros-Lehtinen
    By : September 21, 2009
    President Martinelli of Panama thinks holding the November 29 election in Honduras would be a “departure” from the current situation and, therefore, says he will support the outcome as long as the election is transparent. / An election sponsored by a military regime which has repressed the people through murder, detention without charge, rape, and violent censorship of the media cannot, by definition, provide a transparent election. If you add to this the National Resistance's promise to boycott the election, you have nothing less than an illegal electoral farce. / So nice try, from one Italian to another, but Martinelli's announcement won't lend any credibility to Micheletti's regime and intentions of going forward with elections.
