A REVOLUTION IN THE MAKING
Last July 16, I literally said that the
coup d’état in
I mentioned the names of Hugo LLorens, Robert Blau, Stephen
McFarland and Robert Callahan, Yankee ambassadors to
I then indicated that the Yankee base at Soto Cano had provided the main backup to the coup and that “the idea of a peace initiative from Costa Rica was transmitted to the president of that country from the State Department when Obama was in Moscow and he was declaring at a Russian university that the only president of Honduras was Manuel Zelaya,” and added: “With the Costa Rica meeting, the authority of the UN, the OAS and the other institutions that committed their support to the people of Honduras is being questioned.” “The only correct thing to do at this moment is to demand that the government of the United States ceases its intervention, stops giving military aid to the coup and pulls out its Task Force from Honduras.”

He is entitled to his position in the government and to preside over the elections. New and admirable cadres are outstanding in the combative social movements; they are capable of leading that people through the hazardous journey ahead of the peoples of Our America. A Revolution is in the making there.
The current session of the United Nations General Assembly can be a historic one depending on its rights and/or wrongs.
The world leaders have presented very interesting and complex subjects, which reflect the enormity of the tasks facing humanity and the little time available.
