Chistopher Castillo

General Coordinator

Activist and  human rights the natural commons defender, he is currently the General Coordinator of the Alternative for Community and Environmental Claims of Honduras ARCAH and a member of various organisations and projects that work in favour of the defence of territory and the environment in Honduras.

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.
