The action taken against Honduran President Mel Zelaya violates the precepts of the Inter-American Democratic Charter, and thus should be condemned by all. We call on all parties in Honduras to respect the constitutional order and the rule of law, to reaffirm their democratic vocation, and to commit themselves to resolve political disputes peacefully and through dialogue. Honduras must embrace the very principles of democracy we reaffirmed at the OAS meeting it hosted less than one month ago.

That’s what she said yesterday after the military coup. To read more on what happened see an informative article in today’s NYT. Honduran President Is Ousted in a Coup.

Sorry to always link to NYT, its my main newspaper these days. Though, with the help of Google Reader, I have already begun diversifying my news sources greatly, including primary sources (aid-workers’ blogs and such). Google Reader is definitely something worth trying out, you’ll probably love it!
