  • Honduras: protests continue despite more killings
    By Calvin Tucker - : October 04, 2009
    Five hundred Hondurans yesterday defied the dictatorship’s ban on public demonstrations and gathered near a sports stadium in the working class district of El Pedregal in south Tegucigalpa. The meeting was organised mainly by word of mouth and through the social networking website Facebook. The last remaining independent media outlets, Radio Globo and TV channel 36, both of which had played a key role in organising resistance, were raided by armed soldiers last week and forced off air.

  • Terms Being Offered "Aren't Sincere"
    By : October 04, 2009
    "It's like being trapped in some kind of Neo-Nazi concentration camp," said ousted Honduran President Mel Zelaya, during a cell phone interview on Friday afternoon. Mr. Zelaya was referring to conditions inside the Brazilian Embassy, where he's been holed up for almost two weeks, after sneaking back into the country on foot. The president, known for his trademark cowboy hat and flamboyant mustache, said that the hundreds of soldiers surrounding the Embassy are very strict about how much food they allow into the building. "They also don't let us have anything to read, or even important papers. And no visitors," he said. "Only their people are allowed inside the perimeter … Our supporters can't even come near the building."

  • Honduran military: An institution against democracy?
    By Sara Miller Llana - : October 04, 2009
    This year's Day of the Soldier celebrations in Honduras got a mixed response. The military is now seen as tarnished by its role in the ouster of President Manuel Zelaya.
    With rifle shots into the air and the national anthem sung by soldiers in salute, Saturday's Day of the Soldier in Honduras seemed no different than any other year's commemorations for the armed forces. But this Oct. 3, after the June ouster of President Manuel Zelaya catapulted the Honduran military into the middle of a political saga, the customary congratulations from Honduran citizens are more muted.

  • Congress versus the Supreme Court (a long story)
    By : October 04, 2009
    The release just over a week ago by a US Republican congress member of a report wrongly characterized as by the Congressional Research Service caused excitement in Honduras, where it was portrayed as indicating that the US recognized the de facto regime's claim to legitimacy. It also sparked debate between coup apologists and opponents on the internet, proposing different interpretations of the report and, more significant, of Honduran legal and constitutional procedure. After much reflection, I have decided to post this contribution even though I am concerned that all of us have been caught up in a sterile discussion initiated by a badly researched, badly sourced Library of Congress Law Library report.
