The Micheletti "counter-proposal": A rant
Micheletti's negotiators today rejected the Arias plan, despite the fact that it addressed the supposed reasons for the constitutional and military coup d'etat, despite the fact that President Zelaya agreed to Arias' terms, which many commentators supportive of the constitutional government feel demanded too much and placed Zelaya in the position of repudiating his supporters. At the same time, the Micheletti group offered their own counter-proposal, which can be downloaded in PDF from El Heraldo, one of the pro-Micheletti Honduran newspapers.
This Sunday will be a day for large meetings and discussion of the possible scenarios following the negotiations in San José. The highway blockades and other activities on the national level have been suspended and the men and women of the resistance will try to rest a little and see their families and houses that we've abandoned for weeks.
My friend Oscar, he of the poignant and beautifully written updates I've been translating here, has been without electricity for two days and has two strange men posted outside his front door. How far will this coup regime go?

This is, in fact, closely related to what's going on in Honduras. Both the U.S. healthcare system and the military coup government in Honduras demonstrate just how deadly protecting profits at the expense of democracy can be. Please join us:

We wrapped up the day trying to read the different signals sent by the coup government throughout the day. The repression will grow, as will the grassroots actions.
