On March 2, our longtime friend and ally, the Honduran anti-dam activist Berta Cáceres, was brutally murdered for her opposition to the Agua Zarca Dam.
Berta had received repeated death threats in recent months, and other members of her organization, COPINH, have been killed before her.
Despite the violence and intimidation, international dam builders and financiers have continued to move forward with the Agua Zarca project. This is unacceptable.
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 call on international dam builders and financiers FMO, Finnfund, CABEI and Voith-Siemens to immediately pull out from the Agua Zarca dam project.
