November 7, 2016 - It is with deep sadness and concern that CAO has learned of the deaths of two rural land rights leaders in Honduras. José Ángel Flores, president of the Unified Campesinos Movement of the Aguán (MUCA), and Silmer Dionicio George, a leader of the La Confianza farmers' cooperative, were shot dead by a group of men outside MUCA’s office in the community of La Confianza in the Bajo Aguán on October 18, 2016. MUCA is a complainant organization to CAO. CAO extends its condolences to their families, friends, and the people of Honduras.
