The view–and more importantly, sounds–of the police/military repression of Hondurans in their neighborhoods from outside Oscar's window, about 5 hours ago
The largest jail in the world
The pinochetazo of the 21st century
Juan Almendares, translation by RAJ
While some international organizations and governments discuss if what occurred in Honduras is a military coup from the empty formality of the "rule of law" or the State of Law, the truth is that there doesn't exist the least respect for the law nor human rights.
Trusted inside sources tell us that the de facto regime plans to forcibly evict the rural farmers who have taken over the facilities of the National Agricultural Institute (INA), in the pre-dawn hours.
...and corresponding violent repression by police and military in neighborhoods around the country. Many people are reported killed throughout the city of Tegucigalpa, shot by agents of state violence for walking outside of their homes, and the more state violence, the more people resist. Some have even been attacked in their homes; an infant is reported to be in critical condition after a teargas canister was thrown by police into the house, which was suspected of harboring protesters.
Maybe the Red Cross should look into this. They already lost serious credibility with their involvement in the Colombian hostage operation. It's almost like you can't trust them anymore.
By the way, all the statements that I've been posting without citations today come either from personal emails from firsthand witnesses in Honduras or from live radio reports, via internet, on Radio Globo and Radio Progreso.
To get inside the twisted golpista mind, my friend attended the nutty Hudson Institute's conference titled Populist Threats to Democracy in Central America. This is their report:
The de facto government, through its violence and denial of constitutional and human rights, has managed what Zelaya alone had not fully succeeded in doing: uniting the entire country in the struggle for freedom. Today, they resistance underwent an important shift: it went local. The following Tegucigalpa neighborhoods are defying the curfew and protesting against the coup d'etat:
Another fantastic piece by Jesse Freeston, featuring Oscar Estrada. Quicker downloading version available at The Real News. Simply outrageous footage of the OAS.
