PBI Honduras > Who we accompany > Dina Meza 

Dina Meza

Dina Meza is a well-known Honduran independent journalist and defender of the right to information and freedom of expression. She works to investigate and denoounce human rights violations in cases such as those of protesting students and other violations of the right to freedom of expression. Meza currently serves as the president of PEN Honduras, and manages the online news magazine Pasos de Animal Grande.

En 2007, Meza recieved Amnesty International UK's special award for at-risk journalists, and in 2014, Meza received the Oxfam Novib/PEN International Freedom of Expression Award.

Her work as a journalist and human rights defender has resulted in persecution and multiple threats directed towards both Meza herself and towards her family. Since May 2014, PBI has accompanied Meza in a context of sustained violence against Honduran journalists.
