Rebuilding the Garifuna people's radio station  1/20/2010 Quotha: "In the early morning hours of Wednesday, January 6th, the Garífuna community radio Faluma Bimetu (Sweet Coconut) - based in Triunfo de la Cruz - was burnt down by unknown armed individuals who proceeded to loot the station’s radio equipment. This is not the first time the radio has been attacked and its equipment stolen. In 2002, unknown persons stole the Faluma Bimetu transmitter and other key radio equipment. The Garífuna people are in resistance to a slow process of forced (and often times violent) assimilation into the dominant culture by proponents of the tourist industry and mass media; and subject to evictions by corrupt corporate monopolies. Triunfo de la Cruz, like other Garífuna communities in the Tela Bay area, has become a conflict zone since the invasion of venture capitalists, politicians, and foreign investors attempting to seize community land for the construction of mega–tourism projects."

The Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Expression expresses concern over the attack against a radio station in Honduras  1/10/2010 Media Newswire: "The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights’ ( IACHR ) Office of the Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Expression expresses concern over the attack against community radio station Faluma Bimetu ( Coco Dulce ), which belongs to the Garifuna community in the Triunfo de la Cruz area of Atlántida department, Honduras… According to the information obtained by the Office of the Special Rapporteur, sometime after 3:30 in the morning on Tuesday, January 6, a group of unknown individuals broke into the building from which radio station Faluma Bimetu ( Coco Dulce ) operates and removed equipment including the transmitter and two computers. They then set fire to the facility, though the fire only damaged part of the building thanks to the intervention of the neighbors. Since the June 2009 coup, radio Faluma Bimetu ( Coco Dulce ) has received several threats for its opposition to the coup and to several real estate developments in the region. For this reason, the radio station had informed the IACHR that it was at risk."

Urgent: Assault on Garifuna Communal Lands  11/18/2009 Quotha: "From the Garifuna community of Triunfo de la Cruz we have received word that relatives of a member of the National Congress [Diputado Antonio Fuentes] plans to seize communal lands. Once again it is shown that the continual threats against and repression of Garifuna peoples stems from the voracious appetite for land and for the malignant racist spirit that drives coup-supporting legislators who claim to defend fossilized principles of the Constitution of the Republic. We demand a stop to the assault on the existence and historical dignity of the Garifuna peoples and first nations of Honduras. We demand respect for Mother Earth who today is trampled on by multinationals and the oligarchy."

Denuncio la detencion e injusto encarcelamiento de tres de nuestros dirigentes comunitarios."

Honduras looks to develop northern coast; Garifuna fight to keep beaches  1/2/2002 ENN: "A disease has killed most of the palm trees along the coast, robbing residents of one of their main food sources -- coconuts -- while Hurricane Mitch in 1998 forced many fishermen to sail hours out of their way to find their catch. "There are no highways, and they are deforesting the land," Lored said, arriving for a meeting to organize residents against encroaching tourism. At the same time, Garifuna leaders say, residents are coming under increasing pressure to sell their land to developers. In the coastal village of Triunfo de la Cruz, 190 miles north of Tegucigalpa, the capital, a few residents sold a yucca field because they didn't know they had the right to say no, community leader Edgardo Benedeth said. "They think that if they don't sell the land, it will be stolen" and they won't receive any money, he said. Once other villagers discovered what had happened, the yucca field was already being plowed under and construction had begun on seven luxury vacation homes, complete with swimming pools and two-story picture windows. The community is fighting the construction in court and trying to educate residents about their property rights. But that development is just the beginning. Small hotels and restaurants are sprouting up nearby, and Honduran officials are searching for foreign investors for a multimillion-dollar resort located in the swamps next to the Garifuna village of Tornabe, 12 miles to the west. A similar resort is being planned 100 miles to the east, amid several Garifuna villages. "We have hundreds of kilometers (miles) of beaches that aren't developed, and it's a waste," Tourism Secretary Ana Abarca said in Tegucigalpa. "We want strong tourism. We are going after the sun and the beach."
