Nine Injured in Protest by Environmentalists in Honduras

TEGUCIGALPA – At least nine people were injured when assailants attacked Honduran and foreign environmentalists holding a demonstration earlier this weekend in memory of slain human rights activist Berta Caceres, protest organizers said.

The protesters were “attacked and threatened with death – on Friday – by a group of men working for the Desarrollos Energeticos S.A. (DESA) company,” the Social and People’s Movement Platform of Honduras, or PMSPH, said in a statement.

The protesters were returning from an event at the Gualcarque River, located in western Honduras, when they were attacked.

An unidentified Spanish citizen was among those injured, the PMSPH said.

“Telesur cameraman Ezequiel Sanchez was also threatened and beaten,” the grassroots organization said.

The assailants also threatened Tomas Gomez, the new coordinator of the COPINH Indian organization, which was led by Caceres until the 44-year-old activist was murdered on March 3 in La Esperanza, a city in western Honduras, the PMSPH said.
