2023 award recipient


OFRANEH’s work in Honduras includes defending the self-determination and traditional ways of life of the Garífuna people; protecting their rights; and endeavoring to prevent displacement by tourist developments, retirement communities, African Palm plantations, Special Economic Zones, mining and hydroelectric projects, and drug cartels. OFRANEH members have been harassed, threatened, persecuted, kidnapped, disappeared and murdered, often as a result of defending their lands in the context of land grabs and disputes over ancestral territories.
