Céleo Alvarez Casildo: The Crisis Won’t Be Resolved on Paper

For a November 2010 Referendum on a New Constitution in Honduras

By el diario Tiempo
San Pedro Sula, Honduras

November 2, 2009

LA CEIBA: Garifuna leader Céleo Alvarez Casildo recognizes that the imminent restitution of President Manuel Zelaya Rosales is an important step toward returning peace to the nation, but he says that the crisis isn’t totally resolved.

D.R. 2009 – el diario Tiempo
“The simple fact that there is a written agreement between parties in conflict really doesn’t resolve the crisis that inflicts the Honduran people,” said the leader, who was national president of the Medical Workers Union (Sitramedhys) in the 1980s.

Alvarez Casildo said that this is an agreement between the political and economic classes but at its core it doesn’t solve the accumulated crises that harm the Honduran people.

He added that the agreement generates some calm but what must come next are practical steps, for example reform of the Electoral Law so that there can be separate elections for president, congress and mayors.

“There needs to be a referendum in November 2010, that is what we insist on, it doesn’t matter who is president, so that the citizenry can pronounce itself for a new Constitution.”

“That is the source of the national discord, and until it is corrected, we will remain in crisis. A new Constitution of the Republic needs to be written.”

“But the solution is not only found in a new Constitution, but also in a new power relationship where the citizens have better access, support for production, education and quality health care, access to housing, to justice and public safety and a more equitable distribution of wealth.”
