VIDEOS: As President Zelaya Leaves, the Resistance Will Be There to Salute Him

January 27, 2010

It seems like a good time to look back at the last seven months  and honor the Honduran Resistance which hit the streets June 28, on the day of coup, and has not stopped.

The Resistance is Not Afraid:

The anthem of the Honduran Resistance is a beautiful and compelling song:  “Nos tienen miedo porque no tenemos miedo” or in English, “They are afraid of us because we are not afraid.”  Two versions.



Illegal Detentions, Arrests, Beatings and Death Squad Democracy:

At the end of a peaceful march, the golpistas’ police and military detained more than 25 people, some of whom were seriously hurt and maltreated.  The detainees were transferred to different police posts by various “special” police forces.  The detainees did not commit any crimes and the authorities have no proof of their culpability.  Of course state-sponsored repression continues today:  Death Squad Democracy.


The Valiant and Brave People of the Resistance Drive On:

    Thanks from an anonymous reader. Many people would be in the dark without this English-language coverage.

    Dittos on Joe’s praise for your coverage.

    This story is far from over, but I will have to set daily journaling of it aside.

    What a hell of a ride.

      Thanks. I feel like this is a six volume book and we just finished volume 1. Daily blogging on Honduras is out for me for awhile. Now, it’s Haiti and Guinea.
      Good luck. Catch you someday in the blogosphere on Honduras or maybe another topic.
