Honduras against the world

Ladies and gentlemen of the international community:

Honduras is a small country but with dignity.

We condemn the intervention to surrender the Constitutional Government of Honduras led by Roberto Micheletti. You have no right to impose your views on how to govern this country. Respect our right to self-determination.

Honduras is a country of laws. The constitutional order is not broken. If there was an imposed reinstallation of Zelaya in Presidency that would be a breach of constitutional order.

We are not going to be cornered with threats of isolation. Stop asking us to dialogue with Mr. Zelaya, We exhausted all opportunities of dialogue with Mr. Zelaya. This is the reason of his unfortunate outcome. Mr. Zelaya is a very stubborn person.

You ignore the administrative chaos left by Mr. Zelaya. The damage of this administration was worse than a hurricane. We prefer to suffer international isolation for the remaining seven months until a new elected government before Zelaya’s return as a hurricane to leave our country in ruins.

Mr. Zelaya wanted to impose the twenty-first century totalitarianism through a new constitution drawn up according to his whims. We prefer to be a little poorer than slaves of Hugo Chavez.

  1. The World Bank suspended money to Honduras 6 months ago so there is no impact on that.

    Guatamala has said only for 48 hours for the trade embargo. The US is now refusing to call it a "coup" so that it does not have to sanction or do trade embargos.

    Lots of barking dogs with no teeth!

  2. People of Honduras, forgive our "leaders" in our government as they haven't a clue. The freedom loving people of the united States are on your side and stand behind you. I pray for your freedom…

  3. Elvin Santos should have been interim president…
    But Elvin resigned due to issues with Zelaya…
    Micheletti lost internal elections by a landslide – to Elvin Santos…
    Michelletti DOES NOT have universal support in Honduras…
    Everyone is taking advantage of the coup…

    Yes Mel has been influenced by Chavez…
    But a coup was not the answer…
    We did not have to return to the stone ages…
    Or emulate the United States…

    I live in Honduras…
    I know the truth…

  4. Micheletti was the next in line according to the constitution. So we have a constitutional succession. There is no such coup.

    It's not about a contest of popularity. General elections are coming in November.
