In the space of two weeks, four activists working with local communities opposing development projects have been shot. The Honduran government is either unwilling or unable to protect its citizens. We need you to let them know the world is watching.

Sign the petition to:

  • call for an independent investigation into the murder of Berta Cáceres
  • call for witness Gustavo Castro to be safely returned to Mexico
  • demand protection of Honduran environmental and human rights defenders
  • support their demand to cancel the Agua Zarca dam

The good news is that some international financiers of these projects are already leaving the project. If the Honduran President realizes that people around the world are going to keep the pressure on, the message will go out that the killings must stop.

The petition to ask the Honduran President to stop the bloodshed in Honduras is now closed.
