Something brewin’ at the border (wish it was good beer)

So this past Friday and Saturday, Mel decided to cross into Honduras at the Honduran/Nicaraguan border near the town of El Paraiso at the Las Manos border crossing. On Friday the 24th, he crossed for a few hours and spoke to his supporters and the media. I believed he requested to speak with a higher-up military official. The following day, he did not cross into the border, but still spoke to his supporters via megaphone. He has been camped out in the Nicaraguan town of El Ocotal ever since. There have been strict curfews along the border areas and in the department of El Paraiso. There were rumors that Mel was going return to the US for more talks on Tuesday, but that never happened. Talks have been stalled between the 2 parties.

Roberto Micheletti, the current interim president, published an op-ed piece in Monday’s Wall Street Journal. Check it out.

Will keep you posted!
