Ask Your Rep. To Co-Sponsor The Berta Cáceres Human Rights in Honduras Act! | InterReligious Task Force on Central America

2.12.16



On July 14, 2016, bill HR 5474, the Berta Cáceres Human Rights in Honduras Act, was introduced to the US House of Representatives by Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA), Conyers (MI), Ellison (MN), Kaptur (OH), Serrano (NY), and Schakowsky (IL). The full bill can be read here

The bill states that "The Honduran police are widely established to be deeply corrupt and to commit human rights abuses, including torture, rape, illegal detention, and murder, with impunity” and that the military has committed violations of human rights. Therefore, the bill asks that the United States suspend all “...security assistance to Honduran military and police until such time as human rights violations by Honduran state security forces cease and their perpetrators are brought to justice.”
