Panel at conference on Journalists in Honduras

Photograph of the panel speaking at a conference titled Los Crimines Contra Periodistas Impulsan el Silencio en Honduras. Dina Meza, co-founder and president of the Honduran Centre, can be seen on the end left hand side of the table; the Honduran journalist Julio Ernesto Alvarado can be seen seated third from the left. This conference was organised by the Honduran Centre in collaboration with PEN International and took place on 5 December 2018 at the Hotel Real Intercontinental in Tegucigalpa. It aimed to call attention to the extent to which crimes committed against journalists in Honduras have caused a chilling effect upon free expression throughout the country, and particularly focused on commemorating Juan Carlos Argeñal, a Honduran journalist who was murdered on 7 December 2013 for disseminating news about local government corruption. The Honduran Centre, alongside PEN International and other PEN Centres, supported Argeñal’s case and campaigned for justice on his behalf.

Conversatorio

Fotografía de los ponentes de una conferencia titulada Los Crimines Contra Periodistas Impulsan el Silencio en Honduras. Dina Meza, cofundadora y presidenta del Centro Hondureño, puede verse sentada en el extremo izquierdo de la mesa; el periodista Julio Ernesto Alvarado, está sentado el tercero empezando por la izquierda. Esta conferencia fue organizada por el Centro Hondureño en colaboración con PEN Internacional, y tuvo lugar el 5 de diciembre de 2018, en el Hotel Real Intercontinental de Tegucigalpa. El propósito del encuentro fue destacar que los crímenes contra los periodistas en Honduras estaban teniendo un efecto paralizador de la libertad de expresión en el país. El evento se centró particularmente en conmemorar a Juan Carlos Argeñal, periodista hondureño asesinado el 7 de diciembre de 2013, por haber difundido noticias sobre corrupción en el gobierno local. El Centro Hondureño junto con PEN Internacional y otros Centros PEN, hicieron campaña para pedir justicia en el caso de Argeñal.
