Tell Dam Builders to Pull Out of Agua Zarca Dam!
For years, critics of the Agua Zarca dam project in Honduras have been targeted by a campaign of violence, intimidation and outright murder.
Then, on March 2, Berta Cáceres – vocal critic of the Agua Zarca Dam, Goldman Prize winner and mother of four – was brutally murdered in her home.
Enough is enough. The Agua Zarca Dam – and the campaign of threats, violence and outright murder against critics of the project – has to stop.
We demand that international dam builders and financiers immediately pull out of the Agua Zarca dam project, and not get involved in any other projects on indigenous Lenca lands in Honduras.
Take further action!
- Demand a comprehensive investigation into Berta's death, and demand security for Gustavo Castro, the only witness to the crime, who is still being held in Honduras against his will.
- Tell US Secretary of State John Kerry to end military aid to Honduras immediately.
- Ask the Honduran president to overturn the decision to keep Gustavo Castro in Honduras for another 30 days.
