Honduran human rights defender thanks Urgent Action activists.

Along with two other grassroots leaders in Honduras, Coronado Avila had been receiving death threats - allegedly from armed groups with links to the authorities - for his work defending the land rights of peasant farmers, protecting the environment, and promoting participation in elections. An Urgent Action was issued on their behalf.
