Human Rights Lawyer Condemns Canada’s Support For Honduras’s Repressive Regime (2/2)

June 21, 2019

Last week, while travelling in Honduras with an international human rights delegation, I interviewed anti-government protesters who had blocked traffic for miles by occupying a bridge in the city of El Progreso.

One of those protesters was Prisilla Alvarado, a lawyer who represents imprisoned, Honduran human rights defender, Edwin Espinal.

Ms. Alvarado condemned the Canadian government and Canadian extractive corporations for their complicity in human rights abuses in Honduras.

My interview of Ms. Alvarado and other protesters on the El Progreso bridge can be watched and listened to here:
