Dear friends of the Unified Campesino Movement of Aguan (MUCA),

With great grief we are informing you that today at 1pm our compañeros Victor Manuel Mata Oliva, 40, Sergio Magdiel Amaya, 18, and a child Roldin Marel Villeda, 15 were massacred in the area between El Bridge and the Panama Cooperative in the municipality of Trujillo, department of Colon.

The assassinated men were members of the Campesino Corporation of San Esteban and of the Unified Campesino Movement of Aguan. They were assassinated as they drove to Tocoa for a meeting in the zone known as the Margen Izquierda del Rio Aguan.

The assassination was an ambush from the side of the highway, it has been relayed that AK-47s were used and that the assassins are Miguel Faccusé's guards, who were driving a blue vehicle with a double cabin.

To the national and international community, MUCA denounces this act as another of impunity and crime that business groups are committing against campesino organizations. We denounce that Miguel Facussé is an all powerful businessman that the state of Honduras has permitted to create violence and terror against social organizations in the country with total impunity. We denounce that he has directly contracted guards for "security" from a company named Orion which persecute compañeros and compañeras campesinos.

Amigos del Movimiento MUCA,

Con mucho dolor estamos informando que este dia a las 1 pm fueron masacrados los compañeros Victor Manuel Mata Oliva de 40 años, Sergio Magdiel Amaya de 18 años y el niño Roldin Marel Villeda de 15 años en la zona conocida entre El Bridge y la Cooperativa Panama en el Municipio de Trujillo, departamento de Colon.

Los asesinados eran miembros de la Empresa Campesina San Esteban y del Movimiento Unificado Campesino del Aguan (MUCA). En el momento de ser asesinados los compañeros se conducian desde Tocoa hacia un asentamiento en la zona conocida como la Margen Izquierda del Rio Aguan.

El asesinato se cometio mediante emboscada desde la orilla de la carretera, se constato que se usaron fusiles AK-47 y que los asesinos son guardias de Miguel Facuse quienes ademas se conducian en un vehiculo color azul de paila y doble cabina.

El MUCA denuncia ante la comunidad nacional e internacional un hecho mas de impunidad y crimen que grupos empresariales estan cometiendo contra las organizaciones campesinas. Denunciamos que Miguel Facuse es el empresario todopoderoso que goza de la impunidad que el Estado de Honduras le permite para generar violencia y terror contra las organizaciones sociales del pais. Denunciamos que este sujeto contrata los servicios de guardias de "seguridad" de forma directa y a traves de una empresa denominada Orion para perseguir a los compañeros y compañeras campesinas

MUCA
