December 20, 2013, New York – Today, 33 representatives of U.S. human rights, labor and faith organizations sent a letter to Roberta Jacobson, Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs, asking that the U.S. government "firmly and publicly condemn" a verbal attack directed at human rights defender Annie Bird by Honduran army colonel German Alfaro. On December 12, Colonel Alfaro publicly declared that Bird was engaged in "destabilization work" and announced that the force which he commands – the Xatruch III Task Force - would carry out an investigation of her activities. The previous day Bird had accompanied plaintiffs from local farming communities who filed complaints that included some over alleged human rights violations by Honduran military troops.
