Honduras Human Rights Worker Murdered

Berta Caceres a Human Rights and Environmental campaigner was murdered on 3 March 2016, at her home in Honduras. She was awarded the Goldman Environmental Prize for her work opposing one of Central America’s biggest hydropower projects, the Agua Zarca cascade of four giant dams in the Gualcarque river basin.

Berta was a co-founder of the Council of Indigenous Peoples of Honduras (Copinh),

After a Copinh march in Río Blanco on 20 February, she and other participants had been threatened and intimidated.

One of its previous leader Tomás García was shot dead by a military officer in a protest in 2013.

I would urge you to e-mail the Ambassador Sr. Ivan Romero Martinez in London at hondurasuk@lineone.net to express your concern about finding the perpetrators of this heinous crime as well as ensuring that no further attacks are carried out against members of COPINH.
