“Where even the Dead can’t rest”
6 minute film (2019) by Trocaire, about Aura Minerals, Canadian/U.S. mining company digging up bodies for gold in Honduras, despite objections of family and community members.
Rivers are being poisoned and graveyards dug up in the pursuit of gold.  Even the dead can’t rest in the town of Azacualpa, Honduras, as Aura Minerals - a Canadian/U.S. mining company supported by the corrupt, repressive, U.S. and Canadian-backed Honduran regime – digs up bodies for gold.  This short film from Trócaire takes us to Azacualpa to hear their story, and explain why Trócaire is campaigning for a UN treaty that would force international companies to respect human rights in their operations.
On December 9, 2019, the Azacualpa Environmental Committee denounced that Aura Minerals (and subsidiary MINOSA) illegally entered the Azacualpa cemetery in the wee hours of the morning, dug up and made off with the remains of Angela Sanabria, buried there 22 years before.
