Deal Reached in Honduran Coup Crisis; Zelaya Restoration Would Depend on Vote by Honduran Congress

Democracy Now!
Oct. 30, 2009

The Honduran coup regime and representatives of the ousted President Manuel Zelaya reached an agreement late Thursday that would pave the way for Congress to restore Zelaya to office and allow him to serve out the remaining three months of his term. We go to the Brazilian embassy in Tegucigalpa to speak with Andrés Conteris, who has been holed up at the embassy since Zelaya took refuge there last month. [includes rush transcript]

Andres Conteris, Program on the Americas director for Nonviolence International. He also works at Democracy Now! en Español.

  4. If this occurs, watch closely if any of the progressive reforms that President Zelaya signed are allowed to continue in effect. In other words, will the minimum wage remain increased, the land reform efforts continued and so forth. If the US can mold President Zelaya into a leader who complies with the wishes of Washington D.C., there will be no problem. If he turns into the likes of Hugo Chavez, there will be big problems.
