As it says in the masthead of the SCISSION blog, "from the breaking point of capital."  Some times the multitude just reach the point where there is nothing left to do but hit back.  Of course, the flip side of this is that the Empire doesn't just take a punch in the nose all that easily.  However, whether it is Honduras, or London, Athens...explosions will occur.

I found a total of two reports on this.  One was at the BBC.  This one is from the Star Tribune up in Minneapolis.  Maybe, there will be more later...maybe we will never hear of it again.

11 people killed as band of armed peasants try to seize ranch land in northern Honduras

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras - Authorities in Honduras say 11 people have been killed in a clash over land in the Central American country's north.
Police spokesman Julio Benitez says two peasants and four guards at the Paso del Aguan ranch died Sunday when 300 peasants armed with machetes and automatic rifles tried to take over the ranch.
Benitez says police found the bodies of five peasants Monday in a trash dump near the ranch. He says they included three men and two women.
The Aguan valley in Honduras' northern state of Colon has been plagued by land conflicts. At least 35 peasants and ranch guards have been killed over the last two years.
Security Secretary Oscar Alvarez says 1,000 soldiers and police officers will be sent to the area.
