Golpista government refuses to re-institute Zelaya , negotiations fail
Advertisements [?]

Announcement was made by Zelaya's Foreign Minister Patricia Rodas a few minutes ago in Cochabamba, Bolivia, where leaders of ALBA are meeting.

Rodas said that due to the "intransigence" of the golpistas, the negotiations had broken down and were a "complete failure." Rodas said the Zelaya side had expected this but that Zelaya had given the talks "one last chance for peace."

The golpistas wanted the Supreme Court to decide the issue, which was not acceptable to Zelaya (the court is a golpista puppet).

What will happen now no one knows. Chat rooms are rife with calls for armed resistance but that is not an option because the pueblo has no arms.

There was also an unconfirmed report that there was troop movement from La Ceiba towards the capital. There was another report of troop concentrations in a couple of sectors of the capital and that fences were being erected at some banks. Also that the golpistas would again declare curfews.

These are just part of the rumors that are sweeping the country tonight.
