Reporters say thousands of people are at the Brazilian embassy and Zelaya has appeared

We are waiting to hear him speak.

Rodolfo Pastor Fasquelle writes:
el pueblo sale a la calle, marcha a la embajada de Brazil, en el camino estan empezando a gritar y a tirar cohetes y petardos, llevan instrumentos musicales, va a hacer falta agua

the people are heading into the streets, marching to the Brazilian embassy, on the way they are beginning to yell and to set off rockets and fireworks, they are carrying musical instruments, there is going to be a lack of water
Zelaya is being broadcast on Radio Progreso, speaking by phone to the international press. He has explicitly denied trying to change the Constitution, clarifying that the June 28 survey was an encuesta. He has asked that the Armed Forces not turn their weapons on the people, but rather, on the enemies of the people.

When we caught his remarks, he was saying:
You can't be like a stone. You've got to be like a river.
The Zen of Zelaya?

Update, 2:30: Reports from the Department of Santa Barbara on the north coast describe a "sea of people" that cannot be contained mobilizing to come to Tegucigalpa.

You've got to be like a river, indeed.
