Situation normal: still the same mess.

This is such a mess, and I am sick to death of it already.

A good account by The Guardian of where things stand now.

How's it going to end? Zelaya keeps vowing to return on Saturday. The new government says he will be arrested. International organizations can't talk to the new government. There are big marches for either side going on (though not any right now as far as I know) and all there rumors going around and ENOUGH.

What a hellish week. Blergh.

I'm reading your blog for the first time and it's very interesting to hear your perspective rather than what I hear through our media. You're right, we are only getting one side of the story. The news I heard made it seem very rational that the coup was bad and Zelaya should be reinstated. Seeing the other side he now seems like a Bush type who was on his way to successfully changing your constitution in a way Bush only dreamed of doing with ours. Screw that. I hope all goes as it should and will be thinking of you. Power to the people!

Hey Fig -
Everything's gonna be alright. You guys unfortunately are going to have to take Mel back in some form (probably with restricted authorities) and I know that it probably sounds odioso to about half of all Hondurans but it's only 7 months. The alternative is alot worse, both in the short and long term. Hopefully it can happen without violence.
