Another fantastic piece by Jesse Freeston, featuring Oscar Estrada. Quicker downloading version available at The Real News. Simply outrageous footage of the OAS.
I'll be on in an hour or so.
Stating any attack on Brazilian territory in Honduras is an attack on the U.S.
Meeting tomorrow, to "analyze the political situation in Honduras."
The coup government may or may not invade the Brazilian embassy at 6pm local time if & when they cut off all the electricity, putting many lives (including the president's) at risk. Rumors have been rampant, so much so that the de facto government just went on cadena nacional, emergency signal, to announce that they don't have plans to use violence to enter the embassy. They are currently trying to smoke him out by throwing tear gas and blasting music inside the embassy. The water and gas and electricity have been cut off all day.
A story that has come out in a wide variety of news sources, and which Machetera has painstakingly translated from La Jornada in Mexico, provides details on Israeli commandos in Honduras training the coup military.

US pledges to help besieged Brazil embassy in Honduras
The United States pledged Tuesday to do whatever it can to help Brazil's embassy in Honduras, which was surrounded by soldiers and had its lights, water and phone lines cut off after deposed President Manuel Zelaya took refuge there.
What began yesterday with a popular surprise party, following the unexpected arrival of President Zelaya to national territory, has become a savage persecution extending throughout the city against the women and men of the resistance.
