Urgent Action: Land defenders at risk

On 30 April and 1 May 2019, Rosalina Dominguez, her four sons and two members of the community of Río Blanco, Intibucá, in Honduras were threatened. The community members are afraid that this might be the beginning of a new wave of attacks against them after previous threats for protesting the Agua Zarca Dam together with the Civic Council of Popular Indigenous Organizations of Honduras (COPINH). We urge the Minister of Human Rights to immediately guarantee the safety of Rosalina Domínguez, her family, members of Río Blanco and COPINH and to investigate any attacks against them.

Take action.
