Honduras: Stop the use of chemical weapons by military forces
Juan Almendares

The occupants of the Brazilian Embassy accompanying President Manuel Zelaya
Rosales, wife and family, as well as people in communities and protestors
are being attacked with chemical weapons launched from helicopters or
aircraft; and sophisticated sonic and electromagnetic radiation devices that
produce severe diarrhoea, vomiting, nosebleeds and gastrointestinal
disorders.

The clinical symptoms manifested are consistent with the use of toxic
substances such as: pesticides, chemical compounds and gases, radioactive
substances like radioactive cesium and toxic mushrooms.

We are urgently appealing for an international medical mission and to the UN
World Health Organization (WHO; this is an irregular war against the people
of Honduras. The armed forces have not allowed access to the Brazilian
Embassy for doctors or the International Red Cross; violating all treaties
and international conventions on health, respect for human rights

Please make this urgent call on behalf of life and love of humanity.

XINHUA: Zelaya returns with soldiers’ help, says Honduran ambassador

Zelaya returns with soldiers’ help, says Honduran ambassador

PANAMA CITY, Sept. 24 (Xinhua) – Ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya’s surprise return Monday was made possible with help from certain sectors of the armed forces, the country’s ambassador to Panama, Juan Alfaro Posadas, said here Thursday.

A sector of the Honduran armed forces begins to shift their loyalty to Zelaya, who appeared in Brazilian embassy in Honduras Monday, the ambassador told a press conference.

“They are young officers, captains, mayors and lieutenant colonels, who have supported president Zelaya,” said Alfaro.

Zelaya’s delegation was able to enter Honduras with the collaboration of these sectors from the armed forces who support his restitution in power, he said.

Alfaro participated on Thursday in a meeting with Panamanian nongovernmental organizations that supports Zelaya. Among them is the Movements of the United Peoples for our Americas (MPUNA).

MPUNA coordinator, Miguel A. Candanedo said Panama pleads for the dialogue and respect to the institutionalism of the Honduran democracy framed in the proposal of Costa Rican President Oscar Arias.

“We support the restoration of the democracy in Honduras and we have clearly said that the Hondurans have the right to decide their destiny respecting the results of the elections which took Zelaya to power,” Candanedo said.

Candanedo added that Zelaya’s return to Honduras must give an agreed and definite solution to solve this political crisis with the support of the international community.

Zelaya was ousted on June 28 and taken by force to Costa Rica. His previous efforts to return had failed.

11:30AM:

Today, we are fortunate to have a new video from The Real News Network, “The Siege of Tegucigalpa,” which provides a terrific overview of events since Pres. Zelaya’s arrival on Monday.  In addition, the video gives you a much better idea of the heavy repression leveled at the people of Honduras over the last couple of days by the police and military and the increasing problems caused by golpista-issued curfews.

After this video, is a video excerpt (in Spanish) of Pres. Chavez’ speech yesterday at the UN in which he addresses the situation in Honduras.

And, then, a few additional updates.

In addition:

A youth was shot  with  a live round by police in the Centra America neighborhood of Tegucigalpa and has been transported to the hospital.

The “sound machine” used against the Brazilian embassy  has been identified by Honduras en Lucha as an Israeli tactic.

    I’m outraged, but not surprised by US official indifference to the Honduran situation, our business community will surely benefit from the coupe regime’s oppression of the Honduran people (I’m talking about worker conditions, not the current strife such as curfews and the like). When Zelaya changed his platform he drew a target on his own head – don’t count on much help from the US in removing it (though you’d no doubt find lots of US companies willing to sell you guns and ammo).

    Most Americans have little to no understanding of what the hell is really going on.

    You don’t have to look too far for proof that the US has no real interest in freedom or for that matter, true democracy. Our leaders give wonderful speeches and then behind doors hand over everything to big business, big money; big assholes. It is us that need to learn from the Hondurans!
