UPDATE: ZELAYA AT HONDURAN BORDER, TRYING TO ENTER; COUP REGIME SAYS IT WILL DETAIN ZELAYA UPON ENTRY

President Zelaya is at the border between Honduras and Nicaragua. He spoke to the immigration officials on the Honduras side and they informed him that they are under orders to detain him immediately upon entry into his country. The orders come from the coup regime. Washington is opposed to his return.

Zelaya is waiting to reunite with his family, who right now are detained by coup forces with other protesters about 5 miles from the border...

Dept of State and White House officials have told Zelaya not to enter Honduras, to wait for his family to come to the Nicaraguan side, and for Zelaya to come to Washington on Monday or Tuesday to find a solution.

Washington is NOT where Latin Americans need to go to resolve their problems. Zelaya needs to join with his people, who have been protesting a repressive violent illegal coup regime for almost one month now, and force the coup leaders to step down.

All you can follow through Radio Globo this very crucial moment in the History of Honduras. After a 2-day "paro cívico" and 24-day of patriotic fight, No pasarán.
