Honduran dictatorship, day 433

Posted by Charles II on March 15, 2011

Just a driblet from the Wikileaks. On July 9th, 2009, Zelaya and Micheletti came to Costa Rica, but never entered face-to-face talks. They laid out their irreconcilable differences. Arias said that it was doubtful any agreement could be reached within a few months. State calls this “positive” and “encouraging,” and seems preoccupied with VZ President Hugo Chavez’s influence on Zelaya. There is a list of the core negotiators:

Zelaya’s: Patricia Rodas (former foreign minister); Silvia Ayala (ex-presidential candidate of Unification
Democratic Party-PUD); Salvador Zuniga (head of PUD); and Milton Jimenez (former foreign minister).

Micheletti’s: Carlos Lopez (former foreign minister); Arturo Corrales (ex-presidential candidate for Christian
Democratic Party-PDC); Mauricio Villeda (lawyer); and Vilma Cecilia Morales (ex-president of Supreme Court of

Costa Rica’s: President Oscar Arias; Minister Rodrigo Arias; FM Bruno Stagno; and Minister of Justice Viviana Martin.

Brother John has several nice posts on the poor of Honduras (here and here), as well as a comment on Lent quoting Archbishop Romero that all of us should heed. We are entering a time of scarcity. It is time for the better off among us to do with less and share with with those for whom death means suffering and even death.
