Ousted Honduran President Manual Zelaya has announced that he will return to Honduras on Thursday. "I'm going to finish my four-year term, whether or not you coup leaders are in agreement," he stated.

Zelaya will return to Honduras accompanied by the Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), José Miguel Insulza, and a commission of Latin American presidents. The Argentine government has announced that its President Cristina Fernandez will accompany Zelaya to Honduras as part of the presidential commission. In a press conference following his speech to the United Nations General Assembly, Zelaya stated that Ecuadoran President Rafael Correa will also accompany him.

Colinas, Santa Barbara, Mayor Amable de Jesus Hernandez told TeleSUR that citizen caravans were being organized to travel from his region to the capital of Tegucigalpa on Thursday to receive President Zelaya.

Funny, I went to CNN just to see how they were covering the story. Of course, what they are covering is Michael Jackson. But, I had seen one article that they accredited to another website about 15 items down on their news list. So, I went back to go see if it mentioned this rather newsworthy event above. Nope. Its a piece about how some people are coming out in demonstrations supporting the US trained generals who staged the coup. Its absolutely amazing how bad CNN is.

Go to NarcoNews, SOA Watch for good news. Probably other sites as well. Foreign Policy in Focus is usually good, but they move at magazine pace so it might be a few days before stories appear there. The image in this post is from SOA Watch.
