72 hours ultimatum to the usurpers of power in Honduras or face the consequences.
(...) We must remind the putschists pinochettis Article Three of the Constitution of the Republic of Honduras, which reads: "No one owes obedience to a usurper government or to those who assume public office or employment by force of arms or using means or procedures that violate or are unaware of what the Constitution and the laws. Verified by acts such authorities are zero. The people have the right to resort to insurrection in defense of constitutional order. "
(...) Hay que recordarles a los golpistas pinochettis el Artículo Tres de la Constitución de la República de Honduras que dice: «Nadie debe obediencia a un gobierno usurpador ni a quienes asuman funciones o empleos públicos por la fuerza de las armas o usando medios o procedimientos que quebranten o desconozcan lo que esta Constitución y las leyes establecen. Los actos verificados por tales autoridades son nulos. El pueblo tiene derecho a recurrir a la insurrección en defensa del orden constitucional».

The legal farce that the usurpers of power in Honduras are developing in a brutal coup d'etat obvious should not go unpunished under the eyes of governments and armies of America, otherwise we will face more emigration to neighboring countries, United States, Europe and a further destabilization of an area of intense drug trafficking covering Honduras, Costa Rica, Guatemala and Mexico with the aim of selling cocaine in the United States. After the 72 hours he has given the level of OAS should be put in order and carry Honduras before the International Court in The Hague to the authors and accomplices of this vulgar abuse of freedom and democracy in Latin America. We can not contemplate any kind of dialogue with respect to these criminals against the Judiciary and the Constitution of Honduras, there's nothing to talk with ordinary criminals, as they say in the courts, prosecution "there is no forgiveness."

OAS to deliver ultimatum to Honduras: Insulza
Wed Jul 1, 2009 4:11am EDTWASHINGTON (Reuters) - Members of the Organization of American States have decided to give the interim government in Honduras 72 hours to reinstate democracy or face possible suspension, OAS chief Jose Miguel Insulza said on Wednesday.
"Basically the decision is to condemn, very clearly, the military coup" that ousted President Manuel Zelaya on Sunday, Insulza told reporters after hours of talks at the OAS headquarters.
He said the resolution being finished would demand Zelaya's immediate reinstatement as Honduran president and charge himself, Insulza, with taking the "diplomatic and political steps necessary" to try and restore democracy in Honduras.
"If within 72 hours the reinstatement doesn't happen, the assembly ... will meet again to suspend Honduras," Insulza said. He said the 72 hours would expire sometime on Saturday.'Disappointed' Cape group escapes embattled HondurasBy George Brennan

A Falmouth woman looking to flee Honduras yesterday afternoon described the tense atmosphere at the airport, as hundreds of travelers were looking for flights out of the country under the watchful eye of soldiers patrolling the terminal.
Elyse DeGroot, her husband, Dr. Robert McGowen, and their two teen children, Matt and Eliza, were part of a Cape Cares contingent offering medical relief to the poverty-stricken country until a presidential coup Sunday suddenly thrust Honduras into political turmoil.
"It's quite a scene. The airport is crazy," DeGroot said by cell phone shortly before her flight was scheduled to depart. "It was different from what we saw when we arrived. There were people with machine guns."

(MADRID) - Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos said Tuesday that Madrid wanted the European Union to recall its ambassadors following a military coup in Honduras.
Moratinos told a news conference he was trying to contact the EU's Czech presidency to suggest "that concerted European mechanisms are put in place to seek the recall of European ambassadors posted in Tegucigalpa".
In radio comments earlier, he described as a ""farce" the nomination of Roberto Micheletti as interim leader in place of ousted President Manuel Zelaya and urged an "extremely firm" approach to see him reinstated.
