Honduras At Standstill + Zelaya just one of millions

President Zelaya is giving a press conference right now, presumably from Nicaragua. About one hour ago, President Oscar Arias of Costa Rica presented a new proposal, called the “San Jose Agreement” of 12 points, adding and modifying his previous 7-point proposal that was rejected by the coup regime on Sunday. The 12 points, available in Spanish here, incorporated several of the requests of the coup regime into Arias’ original proposal.

Specifically, point number one was changed from calling for President Zelaya’s immediate return to power to become a call for a “government of unity and reconciliation” to be composed of members of the coup regime together with representatives from each political party. Zelaya would have been returned to the presidency, but with his hands completely tied. The proposal again called for amnesty for the coup regime, and, in an inference to the coup regime’s allegations against President Zelaya, also called for amnesty to be granted to him as well. This factor clearly legitimates the coup regime’s theories.
