Consejo Cívico de Organizaciones Populares e Indígenas de Honduras (COPINH) (Honduras)

COPINH communicates that FMO and Finn Fund have confirmed their official exit from the murderous Agua Zarca Project

…The banks' exit responds to the denouncements and indefatigable struggle the communities organized in COPINH have carried out against the financing by banks of projects that openly violate the rights of Lenca communities and have been imposed and developed through the murder of leaders like Berta Caceres and Tomas Garcia…The exit of the banks is a victory for communities organized in defense of the sacred Gualcarque River and the rights of the Lenca people…However, we denounce that the FMO and Finn Fund have ignored COPINH's recommendations about a responsible exit.  To the contrary, the banks continue promoting a decision-making process about a hydroelectric dam project that could generate more violence and repression...We continue demanding that the banks recognize their responsibility and that they apologize to the affected communities and COPINH…
