  • 3. Honduras since the 1990s has invested in tourism, considering this aspect as the most important for economic development. With this purpose in mind, the coup de e’tat government has intensified projects that increase land grabbing and harrassment of the indigenous people who live in these areas. They are killing journalists, the most recent was kidnapped and killed on 25th June. In less than four years Honduras has become one of the most dangerous places for journalists.
