Report from Honduras

As news comes of an agreement that would effectively end the coup d’etat in Honduras and restore President Manuel Zelaya to office, a Chicago human rights delegation there reports in its Honduras Resists blog on a demonstration coming under military attack.

“The true negotiation is in the streets,” a resistance leader tells the delegation.  “When we march, that is a negotiation.  When they beat us, that is a negotiation.  The fight in the streets is the real negotiation.”

If honored, the reported agreement would be “a victory for democracy in the hemisphere” and the result of on-going resistance by the grassroots movements of Honduras as well as pressure from Latin American governments, said Mark Weisbrot, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research in a statement.
