On September 29, PBI-Honduras tweeted:

“Starting this month, #PBI officially accompanies @Arcah_hn. We highlight the important work of ARCAH in defending access to water in #Honduras and in the fight against the Law of #ZEDE, repealed by Congress in April 2022.”

On their website, PBI-Honduras further notes:

The Honduran Alternative for Community and Environmental Vindication (Alternativa de Reivindicación Comunitaria y Ambientalista de Honduras, ARCAH) is a space for community articulation and an anti-capitalist, anti-racist, anti-patriarchal, anti-colonialist and anti-classist social movement that seeks to defend territories and common goods from any project that threatens the peace and cosmovision of communities.

Since its founding in 2017, members of ARCAH have fought against the Jiniguare dam, the El Cortijo poultry company, the Zones for Employment and Economic Development (ZEDE) and other projects in Francisco Morazán, Comayagua, Cortés and Olancho, always through resistance and permanent communication with planet earth.
