Chavez's ALBA financing the violence in Honduras?

Chavez's ALBA (Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America) consists of member countries Venezuela, Cuba, Ecuador, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Dominica, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Antigua and Barbuda, and, for now, Honduras.

In this declaration of August 9, ALBA countries admit to funding the Honduran Embassies and "priority activities of the legitimate government of Honduras".

Besides jet-setting around the hemisphere in Chavez's airplane, the only Zelaya-government activities that we are aware of are insurrections, vandalism, and violence against the people, businesses, and the institutions of Honduras. Did ALBA send the US $3 million that was changed in the black market by a Nicaraguan?

The following is translated from the original Spanish (which can be found here):

2. We energetically condemn repeated violations of the human rights of the heroic Honduran people by the golpista military regime, and we reiterate our support for their right to resistance and insurrection, consecrated in the Honduran National Constitution, against the oppression of an illegitimate regime. We reiterate that we will accompany the resistance process to its final victory.

3. We reiterate our commitment to maintain all cooperation programs underway with Honduras, a full member of ALBA, to be carried out through President Zelaya, and as well to include funding of some priority activities of the legitimate government of Honduras, and the funding of activities of the respective Embassy of Honduras in each of our countries.
