Honduran coup and the media

This video says about itself:

Venezuelan-American attorney and lawyer Eva Golinger says the military coup [in Honduras] couldn’t have happened without the approval of Washington.

Underlying the coup that overthrew Honduran President Manuel Zelaya is a social system dominated by extreme inequality and grinding poverty for the vast majority of the country’s people, as well as a long history of US intervention and domination: here.

The contrasting coverage of events in Iran and Honduras says a great deal about the character and role of the [US] American media: here.

Over 100 people have packed an emergency public meeting in London last night against the recent illegal coup in Honduras: here.

The 192-member Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) has condemned the coup in Honduras, further isolating the regime of de-facto premier Roberto Micheletti: here.

    Nicaragua’s Daniel Ortega, Ecuador’s Rafael Correa and Bolivia’s Evo
