Honduras has become one of the world’s most dangerous places for environmental land rights activists after a series of murders there in the past two years.
Three indigenous leaders were shot dead in the north of the country last month. It follows the abduction and disappearance of four activists last summer.
And at least 14 more men and women were killed in similar circumstances in July 2019.
All of the dead and missing are members of the black indigenous Garifuna people who have been fighting to hold on to their ancestral lands for decades.
Drug cartels, palm oil manufacturers and tourism developers all have different reasons to take control of the Garifuna’s land, and little is being done to protect the communities from intimidation and violence.
The Garifuna, an Afro-Caribbean population originally from St Vincent, who were evicted from their homelands by the British in the 1700s, have lived on the shores of the Caribbean for generations.
