"We work in a country where there is no war, although it seems as though there is. It is safer to be a war journalist than one writing about social issues in Honduras, where we can sense danger waiting for us around every corner.” Dina Meza
Dina Meza is an independent journalist and defender of freedom of expression. Due to her high public profile and status as a dissident, she is unable to publish her work in the mainstream media. Dina faces harassment and intimidation on a daily basis. She regularly receives threatening phone calls and her mobile is tapped. Cars without number plates follow her and armed men invade her house to intimidate her family, which has forced her to move house several times. Despite these attacks, Dina continues to use her online platform to draw attention to state violence against activists and human rights defenders. Her website reaches up to 30,000 hits a month.
