(September 25, 2009, Day 90 of coup resistance, Alert#73)
As reported at 10:30am today (September 25, 2009) on Honduran radio “Radio Globo”, by the Honduran First Lady, Xiomara Castro de Zelaya, wife of President Zelaya, it is strongly suspected that the illegal military-oligarchic regime, headed by Roberto Micheletti and General Ramon Vasquez Velasquez, is intentionally spraying chemical compounds and toxic gases at and around the Brazilian embassy, resulting in serious illness to 87 people inside the embassy.
This appears to be an illegal use of illegal weapons against unarmed civilians, Constituting a direct armed attack against the territory of Brazil.
Below, a translation of report sent by Luz Ernestina Garcia, that summarizes what Honduran First Lady, Xiomara Castro de Zelaya reported on Radio Globo.

CHEMICAL TERRORISM, DENOUNCES THE FIRST LADY
Courageously, First Lady Xiomara de Zelaya went on the roof of the Brazilian embassy to look at machines soldiers were using at 10:30am, from neighboring houses, to spray toxic gases at the embassy.
Masked agents of the DGIC (Department of Criminal Investigations) were holding the apparatuses that were spraying toxic gases at the Brazilian embassy, as well as holding regular weapons.
Confronted with shouts by the First Lady – “assassins, assassins” -, the DGIC agents disconnected the apparatuses.
EVERYONE IN THE EMBASSY BEGAN TO EXPERIENCE THE FOLLOWING SYMPTOMS:
Dry, irritated throats
Tachycardia (excessively fast heart-beat)
Skin irritations all over body
People spitting and defacating blood
85 people are accompanying the President and First Lady. All say they will not leave the embassy, they will not leave the President and First Lady alone.
The First Lady attempted 3 times to call Radio Globo – her calls were cut off each time.
People believe it is some sort of acid that is being sprayed, to pressure everyone to leave the embassy.
Today, no food has entered the embassy. Yesterday, the daughter and mother of President Zelaya arrived with food at 3:00pm; they did not let the food enter until 10:00pm.
There is desperation inside the embassy. There are rumours that trucks full of earth have been seen leaving the area; people suspect the regime might be trying to tunnel in.
