Obama, "that little know-nothing nigger"

Questions for coup supporters (my translation of an email going around)

There are hundreds of questions that the people of Honduras are asking about the coup d’etat carried out by the oligarchy. Here are a few:

  1. The Criminal Investigation Division of the Honduran police (DGIC) is responsible for carrying out criminal arrest orders. Why then was it the military who forcibly removed the president from his country?
  2. If Mel Zelaya had 18 criminal charges leveled against him for the past 18 months, why wasn’t the arrest warrant issued earlier? And why was he not taken to jail on Sunday June 28th but rather sent to Costa Rica?

Maduro among the pro-coup lobbyists in D.C.

The man most responsible for the Honduran genocide--the wholesale government-approved slaughter of young poor men and boys (see WHDH for extensive details)--of the past decade will be at the National Press Club today arguing for the constitutionality of the murderous coup government, along with the Zionist lobbying firm the Cormac Group.

Day nine (July 6) from Oscar, my translation

Today the kind of calm that makes your hair stand up straight hung overhead. Fear and uncertainty is in the streets. No one speaks, no one mentions the deaths as if by not mentioning them they cease to be real. The local press has us so accustomed to seeing cadavers in ditches that the thought of death doesn't scare us. But yesterday something very different happened.For the first time the whole nation of Honduras shares a martyr. Every movement has its martyr, but we've never had one that has belong equally to all of us. This is different.

Isis is Honduras: no more, no less.

From my friend Vita Randazzo (my translation) earlier today:

I could dedicate these lines to estimating how many hundreds of thousands of us flooded the boulevards and street that led to Toncontín airport yesterday Sunday the 5th of July. I could use this space to enumerate one by one all the different things we chanted as we marched peacefully for 8 hours, along the lines of “no somos cinco, no somos cien, prensa vendida, cuéntanos bien” ["we are not five, we are not a hundred, sellout media, count us well."]
