On June 7, PBI-Honduras tweeted:

“Last week we accompanied @Arcah_hn to the poultry company ‘El Cortijo’ whose toxic waste, warns the organization, is contaminating the Choluteca River and generating bad odors that affect the health and well-being of the people who live in the area.”

On Facebook, PBI-Honduras adds:

“From the Central District mayor’s office, they committed to the creation of a work table with all the parties and to pay attention to the health of the people who live in the affected area. From PBI we remember that all people have the right to a dignified life, health and well-being being fundamental pillars for the fulfillment of this right.”

On May 24, ARCAH tweeted: “ARCAH denounces manipulation intentions of the El Cortijo Poultry Company.”

ARCAH has also previously posted: “This is for the fight in defense of the Choluteca River against all the pollution caused by the ENTREPRISE AVICOLA EL CORTIJO.”

Defensores en Linea has also reported: “Villagers and advocates consent that the right to health, which is an inalienable right, have denounced for four years the pollution caused by the poultry company ‘El Cortijo’, its waste is seriously damaging at least four surrounding communities and the Choluteca River, where much of the company’s toxic waste falls.”
