Catching up

You go away, completely unconnected, and when you get back it quickly becomes clear that in Iran, Honduras, Sri Lanka and many other places there has been no respite, no let up, no holidays in rural Wales.

For Iran, see Kellie and Modernity links to an account of the vigil for Iran in Boston.

Greg Weeks, the Latin Americanist Charlotte NC academic upon whom I have mostly relied for unbiased Honduras commentary, links to Honduras Coup 2009, a blog of:

“Responses to the Coup d’etat in Honduras on Sunday June 28, with special emphasis on producing English-language versions of commentaries by Honduran scholars and editorial writers and addressing the confusion encouraged by lack of basic knowledge about Honduras.”

In particular there is a translation of the San Jose Accord, a promising statement of mysterious origin, pledging support for a government of national unity. Also a communique from the Honduran armed forces which reaffirms support for the constitution, and the San Jose Accord. There is commentary, to the effect that the coup is cracking despite Micheletti’s bombast.

I also hope to find time to read the primer on Honduran politics.

I would like to write more on Roma in Prague and on Tamil refugees in Sri Lanka, but it’s nearly bedtime.

Because nothing is a no brainer, currently looking for unbiased commentary and analysis on the closure of the Vesta wind turbine factory in the Isle of Wight. Yes, vox-pops. Yes, testimonies. Yes, ideals. But as well as these, please, can’t we also have the facts?
