MUST-READ analysis of Micheletti's "counter-proposal"

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.

Day 21, July 19th 2009 from Oscar (my translation)

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.

(Momentary break from Honduras) July 30: Healthcare Rally in DC

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:

unions, doctors, nurses, seniors, faith groups, and Americans of every stripe support
national, single-payer healthcare.

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.
