Tell Dam Builders to Pull Out of Agua Zarca Dam!

Tuesday, March 8, 2016

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.
