Confirmed: Zelaya in the Brazilian Embassy of Tegucigalpa

Near the U.N. building, very close to the U.S. embassy. Everything's close, actually. The reporter asks the man on the street: "Señor, ¿ya le vio el sombrero del gobernante?"

The difficult work now begins in earnest, and the spokespeople from the resistance are clear on this point: Zelaya is warmly welcomed back as the legitimate president, but more importantly as a compañero in the struggle for truly democratic constitutional reform, the most important immediate goal of the resistance.

NOTICIA DE ULTIMA HORA

Micheletti expatriated by the army? Hard to know what to believe at this moment, but that's what's being reported. Others are claiming it's all made up, that Micheletti's in the presidential palace as usual, but Radio Globo is going to great lengths to convince listeners that they are absolutely sure, at least, that Zelaya's back.

More media attacks as Zelaya prepares to speak in UN

Radio Católica has shut down the program “En la Plaza” and fired journalists Gilda Silvestrucci and Merlyn Aplícano for having interviewed Padre Tamayo, the longtime environmental activist priest who has recently had his Honduran citizenship revoked for standing by the Honduran people. The journalists had previously been warned by their producer Danilo Aceituno, among other things, to stop talking about the involvement of Billy Joya, and to under no conditions ever mention Rafael Ferrari, the owner of Televicentro who exercised control over the station.

Professor Felix Murillo, 36 years of age, was treasurer for the branch of COPEMH (Union of Middle School Teachers) at the Millaselva Institute. He taught at the Vicente Cáceres Central High School during the afternoons and at the Jesús Millaselva in the night school. He was active and disciplined in the many struggles of educators in Honduras. From the beginning of the coup he was very involved in the resistance movement where he formed part of the security and discipline committee. On his motorcycle, he was always at the front of the marches.

A rant.

Does the Congress think GM officials have never given advice to prostitutes? And yet, we've socialized the billions they've stolen from American workers. Corporate Capitalism, too big to fail?

In the meantime, DC folk: we are having a Flag Memorial for Health Justice Week starting tomorrow and continuing through the 27th. A new study released on Thursday shows that at minimum, more than 44,000 people die in America each day due to lack of health insurance. That comes to 120 people each day. We are placing flags on the National Mall to represent the number of people who have died so far this year and each day we will add more flags. It will be at the corner of 15th St and Constitution Ave. Come join us!
