HONDURAS: Land Defenders Still at Risk - ONLINE LETTER

Amnesty International, Canada, July 22, 2019.

On July 16, Rosalina had spoken out to denounce a vicious attack on her community and the destruction of food crops vital to their survival. 

Rosalina and the Lenca community of RĂ­o Blanco are a target because of their relentless efforts to defend their human rights, even when that puts them on a collision course with powerful people who want to exploit the land and water on which the community depends.

The situation is extremely dangerous. Rosalina and her community have appealed for our support.
