Coup d'etat in Honduras (continued)

New thread to show mercy to those on dial-up.

The US government confirmed that it KNEW the coup d'etat was coming ...

Eva Golinger wrote:
A New York Times article has just confirmed that the US Government has been "working for several days" with the coup planners in Honduras to halt the illegal overthrow of President Zelaya. While this may indicate nobility on behalf of the Obama Administration, had they merely told the coupsters that the US Government would CUT OFF all economic aid and blockade Honduras in the event of a coup, it's almost a 100% guarantee that the military and right wing parties and business groups involved in the coup would not have gone through with it.

 

US government knew of the coup

The old man has a few interesting remarks.

Fidel Castro Ruz wrote:
The official television channel was silenced. They wanted to prevent the early spread of the news of the treacherous action through Telesur and Cubavision Internacional, which were reporting the events. Therefore, they first suspended the broadcasting centers and then cut off electricity to the entire country. At the moment, the Supreme Court and the Congress involved in the conspiracy had yet to make public the decisions that justified the plot. They first carried out the indescribable military coup and then legalized it....

Approximately at 2:00 in the afternoon, a tamed majority in Congress -in coordination with the putschists- toppled Zelaya, the Constitutional President of Honduras, and appointed a new head of State announcing to the world that the former had resigned and showing a forged signature. A few minutes later, from an airport in Costa Rica, Zelaya related everything that had happened and categorically refuted the news about his resignation. The plotters had placed themselves in a ridiculous situation in the eyes of the world....

Some events were purely fascist in nature and even if expected they are still astonishing.

Honduran Foreign Minister Patricia Rodas was the putschists' main target, second only to Zelaya. Another detachment was sent to her residence. She was brave and determined, and she acted quickly; she did not waste time and started denouncing the coup in every way possible. Our ambassador contacted Patricia to learn about the situation; other ambassadors did likewise. At a given moment, she asked the diplomatic representatives of Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba to meet with her since she was being fiercely hounded and required diplomatic protection.

Castro goes on to compliment the actions of Cuba's Ambassador:

Quote:
Later, he was abandoned in a road far from the Cuban mission not before being warned that something worse could happen to him if he talked. "Nothing can be worse than death," he answered with dignity, "and still I'm not afraid of you." Then people from the area helped him to return to the embassy and from there he immediately called Bruno again.

It would be nice if the western media paid as much attention to a fascist coup in Honduras as to a disputed election in Iran. Especially as both Canada and the US have economic interests in Central and Latin America and therefore could exert some "pro-democracy" influence ... unlike in Iran where, since the US puppet monarch/Shah made his getaway in 1979, Canada and the US have abandoned their economic support and connections to that country and have newly discovered the harmfulness of Iran's nuclear industry where none existed before.

Micheletti: Only Foreign Invasion can Reinstate Zelaya:

http://www.cbc.ca/world/story/2009/07/01/honduras-oas001.html

"It would take a foreign invasion to return the ousted President of Honduras to power, said the country's newly installed president, Roberto Micheletti.."

[url=http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=14198]Covering (up) the coup in Honduras - the BBC does its bit for the Empire[/url]

 

'Hundreds' of protesters for the democratically elected Zelaya in Tegucigalpa are referred to as 'fanatics' and 'left wing.' It sounds like there would be more fanatical protesters in the streets if it wasnt for the fascist military crackdown.

West Coast Greeny

As far as coup-d'etats go, this one seems really rather tame.

  1. Zelaya lost almost all concievable political support in the country, polling 25% support amongst its people, and losing the support of his own party. Congress was already working to impeach the president from office, but couldn't find any constitutional framework to do so.
  2. The referendum Zelaya was proposing was clearly illegal, and ruled as such by congress, the Attorney General, and the Surpreme Court.
  3. Zelaya was not replaced by some right-wing fanatic, but rather by the man next in line in succession, from the same poltical party, Roberto Micheletti.

The coup that transpired to remove the man from office was illegal, yes, but its hardly Pinochet-Allende.

Fidel

1. polls mean nothing - Zelaya is a democratically elected president

2. it wasnt a binding referendum, and Zelaya is ultimately and legally the highest authority in Honduras. And besides, the rich elite in that country flout the constitution on a regular basis with allowing child labour under the age of 16. So dont give us this crap about banana republic constititions of which this is the 16th and enacted by a rightwing death squad government during the criminal Reagan regime era

3. Yes, he was. And the military commander who Zelaya fired is a graduate of the notorious School of the Americas, a US-based university for export of torture and terror to Latin American countries and beyond

What does it say about [url=http://www.soaw.org/]torture and US-backed oppression in general[/url] in the Honduran constitition? The people around here parroting what theyve read in CNN, Fox and BBC Newz are thoroughly full of shit about the sudden need to abide by the latest of several - a 16th constitution drafted by a criminal US-backed death squad regime in the 1980s. Is 16 supposed to be a lucky number or something? Honduras is still a banana republic run by a handul of elitists and their gringo friends in US plutocracy.

The fact that there are posts here tacitly backing or playing down the coup, is revelatory but not surprising. Liberals and many Western social democrats have patronizing imperial tendencies especially in regards to their racial and class "lessers." The colour line that divides the Americas is significant in this group and leads them to sympathy with the oligarchs and the middle classes as opposed to the poor who they without admitting as much, still think of as brutes.

Chavez: US and Venezuelan Right Wing Support Coup in Honduras:

outrageous coup.

another example, after Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, etc. of the 'new' US administration talking one line while in practice backing military dictatorships that enforce the $$ interests of the globe's current slate of financial/corporate/energy thieves.

same cat, different skin/spin/rhetoric.

i'm no fan of some of Chavez' earlier Stalinist rhetoric, (has he changed that yet?? sheesh, muddies his work) but he and his staff do provide a clear perspective of the coup purpose - to undermine the alternative work that people in Latin America are doing, especially with regard to alternative finance in the region.  In that I wish Chavez and others in the region success.  The current mad casino of the North is turning the entire planet into an uninhabitable war zone.

What Stalinist rhetoric was that? Could you provide an example. Chavez has been very outspoken and active in creating participatory democratic structures and in emphasizing worker (not state) control of the means of production. He hasn't rounded up all his opponents or caused any famines.

Fidel

I'm not sure why the rabid anti-communists around here are so fascinated with Stalin and that point in time. Because famines are an ongoing feature of thirdworld capitalism since way before 1847 Ireland and continuing today with over a billion chronically hungry people still waiting for the free market economic long run to kick-in for them.

It's a method of changing the subject, Fidel, and I hope you don't take it the wrong way when I note that I've seen you go for it, hook, line and sinker, more times than I've had hot breakfasts. Not that I haven't sunk my teeth into a juicy lure, once or twice, but I can't hold a candle to your, um, brilliancy in this regard.

Carry on.

I found some more progressive/left sources for information on the events following the coup d'etat in Honduras. I guess the first thing to UNDERLINE is that the USA - imagine that! - IS THE ONLY REMAINING COUNTRY IN THE AMERICAS STILL MAINTAINING DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH THE HONDURAN STATE AFTER THE COUP. Nice job, Barak Obama. If this keeps up, your street cred in Latin America will be very high among fascists and zero among ordinary people.

Secondly, the OAS doesn't need to expel Honduras from that organization because the (de facto) military junta has decided to withdraw from the OAS. Blam! Shazzam! The most important regional organization is now ... powerless to exert much influence here.They are meeting today to review the results of their abysmal failure.

Ongoing news can be found at ... Eva Golinger's blog (reccommended) or at  the BBC for the British line (heaping dose of skepticism required).

The fascists give TV and radio time to the Church:

[url=http://www.buenosairesherald.com/BreakingNews/View/5581]Head of Catholic Church in Honduras tells Zelaya not to return[/url]

Quote:

In a message broadcast by the local television and radio networks Honduran Cardinal Oscar Rodríguez, urged ousted president Manuel Zelaya to stay out of the country to avoid a "blood bath."

"I know you love life, I know you respect life. Until now, not one Honduran has died, please meditate your decision before it is too late," he implored.

What's that? the Church at the service of the military junta, you say? Why, not at all! Here is a lengthy statement in the [url=http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/new.php?n=16442]Catholic News Agency[/url] denying such baseless charges:

Quote:
The executive secretary of Caritas Honduras, Father German Calix, said the Church in that country rejects accusations that it was complicit in the ouster of President Manuel Celaya. In contrast, Fr. Calix noted that the Church has been urging dialogue and that the deposed president respect the constitutional requirements for a referendum on constitutional reform.

Clearly, the Church has been the very soul of neutrality!!!

Quote:
In a statement on June 19, he noted, the bishops urged authorities to consult with the Honduran people and to ensure that any kind of referendum or reform take place in accord with the country’s laws and constitution.  The bishops would be willing to assist in this kind of dialogue even now, the priest said, despite all of the criticisms that because it did not side with the deposed president, it was somehow involved in his ouster.

Ok, that's really clear. Then:

Quote:
Father Calix pointed out that the bishops were opposed to the idea of allowing the president to run for re-election and that ten days before his ouster they had met with Zelaya to express their view that the people must be consulted on any kind of constitutional reform through a referendum.

Ah, the bishops took time from their divine duties! How civic-minded of them!!!!!

Quote:
“The interesting thing about this coup,” the priest stated, “in which the military was just briefly the visible face, because later they turned the power over to civilians, was that it was produced among members of the same Liberal Party.”

Well Holy Shit, it's not all that bad then, is it? It's just sort of kind of very much like something of a cabinet shuffle or something!

Why are all those other countries whining and crying anyways?

Quote:
Canada now (which speaks for the unannounced US foreign policy) defends the Honduran coup: ""The coup was certainly an affront to the region, but there is a context in which these events happened," said Peter Kent, Canada's minister of foreign affairs, noting that Mr. Zelaya was a highly polarizing figure who clashed with the Supreme Court, Congress and army. "There has to be an appreciation of the events that led up to the coup.""

[url=http://www.australia.to/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=119... behind the crisis[/url]

Quote:
The constitution has since 1980 been tweaked in other areas around thirty times, to the point where politicians of all camps are convinced that the document in no longer adequate. This is where the formal change proposed by Manuel Zelaya comes in: that in the November 2009 election-round, the voters will be presented with four ballot-boxes - the fourth one being used for a referendum on the question: "Do you agree with convening a constituent assembly to draw up a new constitution?" Most members of the political class has been in agreement with the idea - but most too are unhappy with the man promoting it; in great part because lurking behind the fourth ballot-box they see... Hugo Chávez's shadow.

Zelaya's government had proposed to launch a "popular consultation" in an effort persuade the national congress to approve the fourth ballot-box in the November elections. The coup against the president took place at the moment this was due to get underway. But the barons controlling the two traditionally dominant (and now discredited) forces - the National Party and the Liberal Party - began their own campaigns in May 2009. They saw the issue as a possible way of revitalising their parties, and in addition of robbing Zelaya of his "ownership" of the fourth ballot-box idea. Now, Zelaya has been robbed of more than this, and Honduran politics is in flux.

re: Chavez- i saw one of his speeches where he commented on Stalin's and Lenin's positions with respect to some policy. wish i had the reference, it was from a few years ago.  maybe it was a misquote by whomever transcribed the speech, but those with more familiarity with Chavez' speeches would know.  i just think it's important to make distinctions between what any person does well, and what they may not do well.  No one is perfect.  If Chavez' supporters don't try to hide his poor rhetoric, but critique it, then maybe there would be more trust built towards acknowledging the good things Chavez has done, and continues to do.  i'm not going to write him off because he may have been misled, like so many others, by the writings of leaders of the USSR.  Ultimately it's the behaviour of a leader which shows their true character, and Chavez so far has acted with good character, strangely unlike leaders here who denounce Stalin, then set up their own versions of private state control.  by their fruits you shall know them.  [don't smile].

 

thanks

but Fidel in your #17 you're way off.  sure there have been famines 'produced by capitalism', what do you think the USSR was?  socialist utopia?  AND the nasty thing about Stalin and his henchmen is they didn't let many villagers leave to find food.  made the entire countryside into one big concentration camp.

Any chance of sticking to the situation in Honduras in this thread?

sure, but it's better to clarify what's going on in people's minds when Honduras and Chavez are talked about, as those who support the coup are making mileage on the unspoken fears.

[url=http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2009-07/05/content_11655366.htm][... about the role of the Church[/color][/url] in the coup and its aftermath:

Quote:
[Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez] also urged the Organization of American States (OAS) to investigate all the "illegal deeds" that happened during the rule of Zelaya.

    "Our people ask themselves why (OAS) has not condemned the war threats made against us by other countries," said the religious leader, referring to recent statements of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

    "We have the right to choose our own destiny without external pressure of any kind and look for solutions that promote common welfare, we reject military threats or blocks of any kind that will only make the poorest people suffer," he said.

    The cardinal also called on the new government to promote national reconciliation and let aside revenge, pursuit, violence and corruption.

    Rodriguez Friday had a meeting with OAS Secretary General Jose Miguel Insulza who was in the country on a mediation mission.

It must have been a good meeting, because the OAS has [url=http://www.cbc.ca/world/story/2009/07/04/zelaya-return.html]just kicked out Honduras[/url] for defying the call to reinstate Zelaya.

It is increasingly clear that Cardinal Rodriguez not only backed the coup, but is up to his ears in running spiritual interference for the military in the aftermath.

Peter Kent, is, however, a buffoon.

remind, that's a rather broad brush, of 'filthy religions'.  We all know about Opus Dei in this hemisphere, and the role of others, in other denominations and religions who have similarly backed repression of various kinds, but there are also many, many ordinary people, and even leaders in many religions, who have done very good work.

the behaviour of the church leader described was/is atrocious.

and apparently today Father Miguel D'Escoto, UN General Assembly President, is accompanying Zelaya back to Honduras, according to the CBC.

the radio had this aussie-voiced (BBC?) reporter saying the streets today were 'full of tension' as if it was Zelaya's fault for doing his job, responding to the needs of his people, and calling for constitutional change, and not the military coup leaders' fault for any 'tension' ! what a crock.

if the CBC can't get it's own people down there to report,  i wish it could at least give some sense to the actual picture..

Fidel

[url=http://soaw.org/]SOA Watch[/url] has sent some people there to observe. Apparently Zelaya is due in Honduras at 3 pm today.

thanks

i gather that Zelaya wanted to propose an actually democratic constituent assembly process to look at constitutional changes, while military coup leaders wanted to control any constitutional changes themselves.  at gunpoint. 

so now a plan for real participation in decision-making by constituents is grounds for a coup, and those who attempt it, in the face of a militarized cabal, are really the ones 'creating tension'.  what a farce.

Eva Golinger wrote:
The de facto coup government in place in Honduras since last Sunday's coup d'etat has militarized the international airport outside the capital city of Tegucigalpa and shut down all other airports in the country. Letters were received by the Embassies of Argentina, Paraguay and Ecuador from the coup government, denying authorization for airplanes to land in Honduran airspace carrying the heads of state from those nations.

Protesters against the coup government and in favor of President Zelaya's return are gathered around the airport in Tegucigalpa, awaiting their constitutional president's arrival. They have reported snipers are stationed all around the airport, apparently ready to fire at any airplane that enters the area.

President Zelaya is announcing right now from Washington, where he arrived last night to attend the extraordinary Organization of American States (OAS) meeting that resulted in the suspension of Honduras from the multilateral group (note - NOT the OAS, which the coup regime withdrew from unilaterally - N.Beltov) until constitutional order is reestablished, that he will return today to his country, accompanied by two different delegations. The first delegation will be compromised of President Zelaya and the Secretary General of the United Nations (UN) Miguel D'Escoto. They will arrive directly in Tegucigalpa. The second delegation will be the Secretary General of the OAS, Jose Miguel Insulza, together with President Cristina Fernandez of Argentina, President Fernando Lugo of Paraguay and President Rafael Correa of Ecuador. The second delegation will land first in neighboring El Salvador.

It is unclear still how President Zelaya's airplane will enter Honduran airspace considering the coup government has militarized the nation and placed an order prohibiting the arrival of his airplane. The flight from Washington is four hours, so he should be entering Honduras around 4pm EDT, approximately. Either the plane will be shot down or President Zelaya will be taken prisoner by the military coup forces upon arrival.

I wonder if the coup regime is so insane as to open fire on an aircraft carrying the legitimate Honduran President and the President of the United Nations General Assembly. They may be waiting for an OK from Washington who will "look the other way" at the appropriate time.

The courage of this President of Honduras is certainly in marked contrast to the bunch that we have here in Canada, eh? But it is also said that people get the leaders that they deserve. Argg.

this is really so sick.  snipers for an elected leader who wants to find a way for constituents to participate in decision-making.

We can't do anything about that sort of sickness. However, when our own government representatives equivocate about where they stand, well, that is something we can do something about. The only good Conservative MP is an unemployed Conservative. Ditto for those other idiots.

Honduras: Call for Urgent OAS Intervention
Monday, 6 July 2009, 9:05 am
Press Release: International Trade Union Confederation

Honduras: Call for Urgent OAS Intervention for Reinstatement of President and Restoration of Democracy and Human Rights

Brussels, 3 July 2009 (ITUC OnLine): The ITUC has called on José Miguel Insulza, secretary general of the Organisation of American States (OAS), to intervene urgently to protect democracy in Honduras and for the reinstatement of President Manuel Zelaya, who was detained and forcibly transported out of the country in the June 28 military coup.

In a letter http://www.ituc-csi.org/IMG/pdf/Carta_CSA_al_SG_OEA_-_Honduras03072009.pdf to Insulza, Victor Baez, general secretary of the ITUC Regional Organisation for the Americas (TUCA), called for immediate measures to ensure protection for more than 20 Honduran trade union leaders who have received threats to their liberty and physical safety following trade union support for mass protests against the coup.

"This military coup, a completely unacceptable affront to democracy, risks a dangerous destabilization in the region, and threatens the very institutions and systems which have been put in place to assure democracy, peace and stability. President Zelaya must be reinstated and the suspension of key constitutional rights and guarantees must be reversed forthwith. The OAS, with the United Nations, must play a central role in bringing this about," said Guy Ryder, ITUC general secretary.

"We have received information from Honduras that there are lists of trade union leaders threatened with detention and whose personal safety is at risk. The situation is deteriorating, with the military ignoring representations from the OAS and the UN, and instead appearing to move towards generalized repression against those who continue to respect the legitimate authority," said Baez.

RE - MPs:  The Liberal critic, Bob Rae, released a carefully worded statement "condemning the coup d'etat" while urging the junta to "support the democratic process". Way to go, big boy. (not!) Rae's statement is already out of date, as Honduras has LEFT the OAS rather than, inevitably, be expelled and drive a gigantic wedge between the US and its puppets, on the one hand, and independent states on the other.

NDP = ? It would be nice if the NDP actually distinguished itself from the mainstream bourgeois parties. Then again, with all the statements around the deaths of Canadians in the aggressive war on Afghanistan, there's not much room for, um, solidarity with some Central American President.

 

thanks

at the Iran thread it has been noted that reporting is treating the protesters there vs. Honduras differently; where the US supports the (new) incumbent (Honduras) those protesting are described in scary terms while in Iran- where the US doesn't like the incumbent- media describe protesters nicely.

the spin of media distorts who is doing what. 

i just hope Zelaya and people in the street remain alive and well, and not arrested !
