Leave the Venezuelan flags at home

I think that “la Resistencia” would do itself a tremendous service if its participants considered leaving their Venezuelan flags at home. I sense that, if anything, invoking the spirit of Hugo Chavez diminishes their legitimacy, creates more fear, and reinforces the feeling within a huge segment of Honduran society that getting rid of Mr. Zelaya was the right thing to do. It is akin to carrying the Confederate flag down a street in Harlem or the south side of Chicago.
