Stop the bloodshed in Honduras

In the space of 2 weeks, 4 activists have been shot. 2 are dead and 1 is currently in grave danger.

  • Berta Cáceres, an indigenous environmental activist opposing a mega-dam project in Honduras, was shot dead in her home on 2 March.
  • Gustavo Castro, director of Friends of the Earth Mexico and sole witness to Berta’s murder, was wounded in the same attack. Gustavo is being prevented from leaving Honduras. He is in grave danger.
  • On 15 March Nelson García, an activist in COPINH, the same indigenous organisation as Berta, was shot dead in his home.
  • On the same day Mauricio Alegría, from the peasant organisation Via Campesina, was shot near his office. He survived and was rushed to hospital.

It’s time for the Honduran government to protect its citizens and those within its borders. They need to know the world is watching.

Ask the Honduran government to end the killings
