Honduras: Land Defenders Threatened: COPINH

, Index number: AMR 37/2598/2020

On 23 June 2020, the Civic Council of Popular Indigenous Organizations of Honduras (COPINH) publicly denounced threats against the organization. The previous day, they received a digital flyer in which an unknown group threatened to burn down the organization’s “Utopia” facility in La Esperanza, Intibucá department, after COPINH offered this space as an isolation center for people in prison infected with COVID-19. We urge authorities to ensure the safety of COPINH members and investigate all attacks against them.
