The Honduran military and police under the orders of the coup government installed by force last week are repressing the hundreds of thousands of people that have marched from all around the country to await the return of their ousted president, Manuel Zelaya.
President Zelaya is speaking live right now via satellite telephone from the airplane, which is now almost arriving in the Honduran capital. There are reports of several dead and dozens wounded outside the airport, after the Honduran military began firing shots to push back the crowds.
There is a helicopter waiting to capture President Zelaya upon his arrival and there are hundreds of armed forces inside and around the airport. The coup government, led by Roberto Micheletti, gave a bizarre press conference earlier today, stating their legality and even referring to the dictator Micheletti as the "elected president". They later clarified that Micheletti was elected by the Honduran congress, which, in turn was elected by the people....so.....
Nevertheless, the REAL elected president, Manuel Zelaya, is about to arrive in the middle of the madness. The military forces are firing tear gas at the Zelaya supporters, who are holding firm in their support for their constitutional president and their resistance to the coup, which since its execution last Sunday has gotten increasingly and dangerously more repressive and strange.
