...claiming that no chemical attack happened yesterday, despite the hundreds of reports of injuries, and claiming that I, Zelaya, or Radio Globo is making up the sonic attacks...They're actually amusing in their utter idiocy, if it's possible to laugh while crimes against humanity are being carried out. Here's one:
From Schock's website:
“The bottom line is one of the most basic foundations of the world community is the rule of law,” said Schock. “The nonpartisan Congressional Research Service concluded that the removal of former President Zelaya was Constitutional, and we must respect that. It’s unconscionable that our Administration would attempt to force Honduras to violate its own Constitution by cutting off foreign aid.”
As I write, I am speaking to a person who is inside of the Brazilian Embassy and reports that the building is being attacked with chemicals. They have the impression that the military is preparing to break in. This is the beginning of a new stage of the conflict which seems to get more violent with every passing day.
Yesterday was long, many things happened and I am still trying to understand fully the consequences of the day. Certain fears around the march of the "whites" in the end did not come to pass and the morning was uneventful.
Abusing again the national emergency radio system, the de facto government unbelievably claims that the severe symptoms of chemical and audio attacks among the people trapped with President Zelaya in the Brazilian Embassy were the result of a routine cleaning operation using regular cleaning chemicals and loud machinery. In a completely militarized zone, blocked off to traffic. It boggles the mind.
Honduras: Stop the use of chemical weapons by military forces
The occupants of the Brazilian Embassy accompanying President Manuel Zelaya Rosales, wife and family, as well as people in communities and protesters are being attacked with chemical weapons launched from helicopters or aircraft; and sophisticated sonic and electromagnetic radiation devices that produce severe diarrhea, vomiting, nosebleeds and gastrointestinal disorders.

Canard d'Etat: Honduras and the U.S. Press
The best listserv for information on what's really going on in Honduras is being attacked. As horrible as it is, I'm surprised it's taken the coup government this long to attack them; their emails have been the source for a large percentage of my posts since June 28.

In Radio Globo it is being reported that the Embassy of Brazil is being attacked, approximately 2 hours ago chemical, gas, and amplified sound attacks were reported...Xiomara de Zelaya reports symptoms: "We are vomiting blood, bleeding from our noses and [las heces], have severe itching, dryness in the mouth and nose..."
The following is a letter sent from Dr. Rosemary Joyce, Richard and Rhoda Goldman Distinguished Professor of Social Sciences and Chair of Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley, to the Library of Congress regarding the very serious errors in the report issued in their name yesterday. Please distribute widely.
