Zelayistas provoke chaos in Tegucigalpa

The curfew has been reinstated in Tegucigalpa, of course. The hours of curfew are from 10:00 p.m. until 5:00 a.m. in order to protect the tranquility, life, and property of citizens.

How nice. The Zelayistas were led by former first lady Xiomara Castro and her daughter Hortensia. If they aren't speaking out as leaders strongly against this senseless violence and vandalism, we have to assume that they approve of it.

The first lady has stayed in the US Ambassador's house. Members of the violent Frente Nacional de Resistencia group met with the US Ambassador Hugo Llorens over the weekend, though reportedly the Ambassador will not meet with members of the government.

A El Heraldo employee was pulled off his motorcycle, beaten, and his face was painted with "golpista" (coupster).

So, once again, I have to ask: Are these criminals the ones that Honduras should bend to? Are these poor misunderstood delinquents the ones who the human rights people should be worried about or all of the poor people who just want to go about their life, earning a living, going to school, without worrying about being attacked or having their means of earning a living destroyed.

Open your eyes, world. Honduras is being held hostage by terrorists.
