Short film – Where even the Dead can’t rest


Rivers are being poisoned, and even graveyards are being dug up in the pursuit of raw minerals.

Even the dead can’t rest peacefully in the town of Azacualpa, Honduras, as a Canadian mining company digs up bodies for gold, despite the objections of family and community members.

This short film launched in October 2019 by Gerry McColgan and Garry Walsh of Trócaire, visits the community of Azacualpa to hear their story, and explains why Trócaire is campaigning for a UN treaty that would force international companies to respect human rights in their operations.
