MHOL, Movimento Homosexual de Lima

Jorge Alberto Chávez Reyes is President of MHOL, Movimento Homosexual de Lima, Peru, the oldest LGBTI organisation in South America.

While many human rights defenders (HRDs) can operate freely in Peru, those working on the environment, in particular on the environmental and human rights impact of the extractive industry, face harsh repression, including intimidation, smear campaigns, death threats, surveillance, and judicial harassment. Journalists and trade unionists have also been targeted.
