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