1. All of these people used their positions to plot, cause, or finance the breakdown of constitutional order with the kidnapping and extradition of President Zelaya, which culminated in the coup.
2. They are directly responsible for the deaths, injuries, imprisonment, and the unease imposed upon Honduran society; they have destroyed democracy and ruined Honduras' image nationally and internationally.
3. The coup leaders reactivated the anti-terrorist and anti-communist organization called the Alliance for Honduras' Progress (APROH), which operated in the 1980s. Their greed and lack of culture prevented them from understanding that the people are free to choose the political and ideological system that will offer them security and well-being.
Tegucigapla. This time their names and faces will go down in history, and Hondurans and citizens of the world will remember them. They will be judged by society and by national and international courts.
The coup plotters utilized variations on the mechanisms that the Alliance for Honduras' Progress (APROH) used in the 1980s. Under the guise of a business organization, it hid clear political doctrine of "low-intensity war against those who opposed the repression of the Sandinista government and against social discontent in Honduras. United States intelligence financed the organization through the Moon sect."
Nothing particularly "suspicious" is written in the APROH's statutes. A group of businessmen got together to study their problems, with a project to assist other sectors. The economic model that the associates defended was clear: they advocated laissez faire policies with few mechanisms of control and with many mechanisms to maximize profits.
The associates were required to "guard the confidentiality of the documents and information that they acquired through their participation in APROH activities and that divulging this information could cause harm to its members. [sic]
In the beginning of 1983, soon after its founding, APROH didn't draw attention to itself. It was seen as a new attempt to bring together Honduras' most conservative sectors. In November of that year, the newspaper "Tiempo" published one of those confidential "documents:" APROH was recommending to the Kissinger Commission, through a personal friend and aid to Kissinger, a military solution for Central America.
Yesterday and Today's Truth
Military fascism found its place in APROH--then in Gen. Alvarez, the president of that organization, and now [Gen.] Romeo Vasquez. As now, it was comprised of the country's far-right business class, although in reality more than being ideological they are corrupt businessmen who have gotten rich because they determine what happens or not in the country. They are the eternal scroungers who live off financial subsidies, they are the ones who obtain concessions and million-dollar debt forgiveness from the state. They are the ones who finance and control the political parties and use their influence to have power in the National Congress and in the courts. In short, they are the ones who have the country trapped and don't allow the advancement of other businessmen and marginalize the people because for them it's business as usual that they remain ignorant and hungry. It's easy for them to manipulate them with the corporate media, as they are doing with this coup.
At the end of 1983, [there was] a rumor that the United States embassy was concerned about what it saw as the consolidation of a pressure group within the country that was very conservative and very vulnerable to criticism, as is the case now. The coup leaders are once again a problem for the United States. Then, the APROH was dormant for many years, but it awoke on the morning of June 28, 2009, to carry out its work: overthrow the President, manipulate through the corporate media, extra-judicial executions that no one will know about, repression, and psychological war in order to confuse people.
Who Were the Members?
Gen. Gustavo Alvares was the boss, the man in charge of APROH. Rafael Leonardo Callejas admitted that when he was the APROH's Secretary of Student and Worker Affairs--which hoists the flag of anti-communism--he worked so that Osawlado Ramos Soto would be the rector of the National Autonomous University of Honduras (UNAH).
The Moon Sect, a well-known religious organization, collaborated with this organization.
The APROH was created by Álvarez Martínez during the Roberto Suazo Córdova administration as the precursor to the Security Doctrine and responsible for dozens of political assassinations and disappearances in the country. José Rafael Ferrari, Miguel Facussé, Fernando Casanova, Rigoberto Espinal Irías, Benjamín Villanueva and ex-union leaders Andrés Víctor Artiles and Mariano González were also members.
Osmond Maduro, brother of the ex-president and coup leader Ricardo Maduro Joest, was also a member, [as well as] national and international bankers; textile and chemical industry, agribusiness, and television barons; and the technocrats. All of them were represented in the APROH.
Now look on this page at the coup leaders; they are members of the new APROH. There is no difference between them and those of the past. Some of them are even the same: Miguel Facussé, Rafael Leonardo Callejas y José Rafael Ferrari.
Know the "Brainwashing Codewords" the Coup Leaders Use to Manipulate Hondurans
The coup leaders' fierce psychological war waged through their corporate media, which are the driving force behind media in this country, reproduces codes of mass manipulation of the population's mind. For example, it is legal to kidnap the President, because he is Chavez's friend. Micheletti is good, because he hates Fidel and Daniel and Chavez.
by El Libertador
Tegucigalpa. The brainwashing the coup leaders use as its prototype of Honduran democracy can be decoded as seeing what's bad as good, illegal as legal, and the usurper as necessary because he loves the country.
The coup as a "constitutional succession" and the hatred of Hugo Chavez, Daniel Ortega, and Fidel Castro justifies a breakdown of the rule of law and the soldiers' savagery against protesters who demand a return to constitutional order. Those who seek the path of a country where the law is respected are rabble-rousers and vandals, and those who support the dictatorship dress in white because they are pure. They are patriots because they sing the national anthem and demand democracy, which is the same as defending Micheletti because he shares the desire for peace and harmony in Honduras. Many are incapable of understanding that this is how the masses are manipulated by means of the method known as "fool catchers." Others who have weak minds belong to families that have gotten rich off of the misery of the majority of the population.
The Democracy Code According to the Coup Leaders:
Democracy = no Chavez-no Fidel-no Ortega;
Democracy = the rich are innocent, the poor are guilty;
Democracy = Yes to he who breaks the law for our own good, no to Mel who breaks the law for the good. [sic]
Democracy = I support Micheletti and I am a peacemaker, you support Mel and you break windows;
Democracy = I love the Cardinal, you forget our father (and you offend the cardinal);
Democracy = corrupt, more or Zelaya [sic], but hate Chavez and hate Fidel [sic]
Democracy = Kidnapping Mel is good, opposition's bloodshed is good and repression is good, communism is bad. Mel is a communist. The coup leaders don't respect life nor the law because the protect us from bad.
Democracy = Mel is dangerous because of Chavez, Daniel, and Fidel. Micheletti only seeks the good for everyone. Micheletti is good, Mel is bad.
Democracy = Chavez and Fidel want to impose strange ideologies on Hondurans. Mel is Chavez and Fidel's friend, to loathe Mel, Chavez, and Fidel is good because we are Hondurans.

Support for theory that US State Dept. involved in coup
Submitted July 21, 2009 - 4:45 pm by Charles (not verified)
I don't like believing that the US State Department, especially under a relatively good president like Obama, could be responsible for a coup that has cost a people their lives and their liberty, but the recent press briefing by Assistant Secretary of State Philip Crowley leaves that impression. I don't agree with Eva Golinger that the Administration has adopted the position that this was not a coup or that "Washington will back (fund, support, design) coups against governments that align themselves with Venezuela." However, Crowley did clearly say that the coup should teach Zelaya the "lesson" that aligning with "the current leadership in Venezuela would not be a particular model."
There's no doubt in my mind that this will be read in Latin America as support for the coup-- as well as incredible arrogance by the American government in presuming to teach a Latin American leader a "lesson." If only from the standpoint of American interests, this is incredibly dangerous talk. It undercuts decades of progress in stabilizing elected government throughout the hemisphere. This man should be removed from office.
