Please support on the ground human rights monitoring, reporting, and accompaniment in Honduras. On the ground accompaniment is vital for monitoring the human rights violations that occur on a daily basis. Accompaniment and monitoring help to keep alive Hondurans who are struggling to defend their rights. It helps them in seeking justice both on a national level and internationally. It helps them to seek refuge when death threats are imminent. It helps to end the impunity of those who commit the violation.

2014 saw a continuation of human rights violations in Honduras as the neoliberal agenda of the ruling elite continued unabated. Juan Orlando Hernandez completes his 1st year in office as the President with an ever increasing militarization of the country. He has increased the number of Military Police on the streets and is attempting to have the MPs added to the constitution as a permanent security force even as the violations that they are committing are increasing. JOH is also hellbent on creating Charter Cities, the neo- liberal neo-colonial selling off of pieces of sovereign land to foreign investors without local consent.
