Indigenous fight over hydroelectric dam in Honduras

The indigenous communities of Reitoca and Lepaterique had friendly relations until 2017, when they entered into conflict after the Promotora de Energia Limpia S.A. (PROGELSA), came to try to build a hydroelectric dam in the Rio Grande de Reitoca in Honduras. Some of the Lenca indigenous people from Reitoca are willing to give their lives for the river that runs between arid mountains in southern Honduras, while some of the community of Lepaterique say the work must continue for the jobs it generates.
