Martín Fernández Guzmán

HRD & General Coordinator
Wide Movement for Dignity and Justice

The lawyer Martín Fernández Guzmán is the general coordinator of Movimiento Amplio por la Dignidad y la Justicia - MADJ (Wide Movement for Dignity and Justice), organisation that works on  protection of environmental and indigenous rights in the Atlántida region, Honduras, and fights against corruption in the country.

Human rights defenders suffer extrajudicial executions, enforced disappearances, torture and ill-treatment as well as judicial harassment, threats and stigmatisation. Journalists, lawyers, prosecutors, those defending the rights of women, children, the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community, indigenous and Afro-Honduran communities, and those working on environmental and land rights issues are particularly at risk.
