October 2018 Honduras Coup update (tags)
This month: a glimpse at what the migrants are facing, and protest marches are also heavily repressed, environmentalists defending land water and life arrested and kidnapped and a whole camp militarised for a couple of days during which one family was especially terrorised in such a magnitude and fascist way that all this violence, and the barely known violent eviction of the camp and of the subsequent night time highway blockade, was quickly made invisible by announcing two soldiers were shot dead in the confrontations. Similarly, farmers have faced evictions and persecution. Read on to find out more sydneywithhonduras.wordpress.com/2018/11/16/october-2018-honduras-coup-update/

EL SALVADOR, GUATEMALA THEN, NOW THE PHILIPPINESl (tags)
-- The First Quarter Storm Network-USA recalls some accounts on the campaign of assassinations that the US-sponsored ultra-rightist military regimes in El Salvador and Guatemala conducted against their political enemies during the 1980s. The hand of the ugly American, John Negroponte who headed the dirty tricks department was ever present then in Latin America. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that what is happening in the Philippines is uncannily similar to what was happening then in Guatemala and El Salvador in the 1980s. Negroponte, after all, heads up the super-spy agency now that the US is waging a so-called global "war on terror" in tandem with shameless puppets like Gloria Arroyo conducting local campaigns like Oplan Bantay Laya (Freedom Watch).
SALVADORAN GOVERNMENT TAKES ADVANTAGE OF VIOLENCE TO REPRESS THE UNION MOVEMENT. (tags)

US-Arroyo regime, Filipino Social Democrats and the AFP death squads, (tags)
If Marx called Christian Socialism the holy water in which the reactionaries dip their fingers in to become holy, we in the First Quarter Storm Network (FQSN) call the Social Democrats led by Fr. Romeo Intengan and Norberto Gonzales as the vinegar that these reactionary brutes dip the wounds of the victims of their deadly terrorist killing campaigns. The latest pronouncement of Norberto Gonzales that the NPA hit squads are in Manila and are out to assassinate Gloria and some members of her cabinet (including him of course) is a dirty psy-war to set the stage for their death squads to kill leading progressive leaders like the Batasan 5 and other progressive leaders in Metro Manila. No doubt it is a cheap attempt to divert attention from the widespread public outcry nationally as well as internationally against the Arroyo regime’s bloody campaign which has already claimed the lives of hundreds of progressive mass activists.

NO A LA INTERVENCION DE ESTADOS UNIDOS EN VENEZUELA (tags)
Un referéndum para revocar el Presidente Hugo Chávez y varios políticos antichavistas será convocado para el mes de agosto. La presión ejercida por los EEUU para derrocar a Presidente Chávez y apropiarse del petróleo del pueblo venezolano es mas fuerte que nunca. Exigimos que los medios de comunicación informen que esta ocurriendo en Venezuela, en lugar de actuar como empleados del no electo y odiado gobierno de Bush.
NO TO UNITED STATES INTERVENTION IN VENEZUELA (tags)
A referendum to recall President Chavez as well as a number of anti-chavista elected officials is being called for August. US pressure to overthrow President Chavez and get its hands on the oil of the venezuelan people is greater than ever. We demand that the media report what is happening in Venezuela rather than act as employees of the hated and unelected Bush administration.
