The actions of the separatists amount to rebellion. He should order
their arrest and charges of treason against them.
The question of course is whether the armed forces would obey. If it is
done in terms of preserving the republic
a sufficiency of them are likely to support him. In the event of open
armed uprising by the secessionist,
he should attempt to get Venezuelan and Brazilian military assistance.

There comes a time when one has to stop being gentle with opponents who
are engaged in open rebellion.
