Honduras: Further information: Two water defenders killed

Aly Magdaleno Domínguez Ramos and Jairo Bonilla Ayala, members of the resistance of Guapinol (department of Colón, northern Honduras) against an iron ore mine, were found dead in the community of Guapinol on 7 January 2023. One month later, six other defenders of the Guapinol river found out that they could face criminal prosecution for peacefully challenging the legality of a mining project in the Carlos Escaleras National Park. We demand the Honduran authorities to ensure a prompt, thorough and impartial investigation of the attacks against the defenders of the Guapinol river, and to refrain from using the justice system to harass them and to ensure their protection.
