Worth dying for?
Description: Berta Cáceres, Honduras’ most well-known land and environmental campaigner, and winner of the International Goldman Prize for the Environment, was brutally murdered in her home over a year ago. More people in Honduras are killed per capita than anywhere else in the world for defending the land and over 80% of cases go unsolved. “Worth Dying For?” explores the aftermath of the murder of Berta Caceres and the extraordinary epidemic of death sweeping land rights activists in Honduras; we interview the Caceres family, carrying on the legacy of Berta and COPINH, Miriam Miranda, leader of the Black Fraternal Organisation of Honduras, (OFRANEH), Juan Jimenez, the head of the new anti- corruption agency MACCIH, and the Human Rights Ministry of the Honduran Government.

LGBT asylum seekers face hurdles seeking "dream life" in Ireland
Description: Ireland made history in 2015 as the first country to legalise gay marriage by a popular vote, with 62 percent voting in a referendum in favour of gay marriage in the Irish Republic that was once dominated by the Catholic Church. Ireland this month formally elected its first openly gay prime minister or Taoiseach. But the asylum seekers find their bids to build new lives in Ireland keep hitting obstacles, getting bogged down in a slow, laborious system that has been criticised both domestically and internationally with proposed changes slow to take effect.

No exit: Jordan’s most vulnerable refugees
Description: Jayne Fleming is the leader of the Reed Smith Refugee Protection Project, a mobile legal clinic offering legal and psychosocial support to some of Jordan’s most vulnerable refugees – mostly from Syria, Iraq, or Sudan. Their goal is to resettle their clients to third countries where they can start their lives anew. Their clients include victims of torture incapacitated by trauma, children with life-threatening or degenerative illnesses, and victims of rape or gender-based violence. They want to get to countries that can provide support which is unavailable in Jordan. If they don’t achieve this, many may not survive.

Frontline Insight: Photographing Libya’s slaves
Description: Instead of being a place of transit for migrants on their way to Europe, Libya has become a trafficking market where people are bought and sold on a daily basis for as little as $200. We interviewed photojournalist Narciso Contreras, recipient of the 7th Carmignac Photojournalism Award, on his experience photographing this unfolding humanitarian crisis. Six years after the fall of Muammar Gaddafi, Libya is still a lawless state where armed groups compete for land and resources and large weapons and people-smuggling networks operate with impunity. “We got contacts with smugglers in the south, with militias in the north – key characters that gave us access to very sensitive information. […]. You’re taken by hand by these characters, so you have to move very carefully,” Contreras said. -- Contreras’s work on Libya is on show at the Saatchi Gallery in London until June 16, 2017.

Trapped by Trump Crackdown: Syrian Lives in Limbo
Description: The travel ban may be in the courts, but thousands remain in limbo. Syrian refugee Mohamed Haj Ali speaks without emotion as he recalls the day last December when he found out that U.S. authorities had given approval for him to move there from Jordan with his wife and their four-year-old son. He was told to attend cultural training so for five consecutive days the family woke at 5am and took a taxi 90 km (56 miles) to Amman to attend a course. It was supposed to be the last step of a screening process that lasted over two years. "The group who was with us was made up of 20 families," Ali, 27, a former school teacher from Daraa, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation in an interview in the Irbid flat his family shares with his mother and brother, his wife and two children. "All the families from that group travelled to the United States, except for me, my wife, and my son." For Ali's planned move came too late - after U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to halt visas to seven Muslim-majority nations and for refugee resettlement for the sake of "national security" to head off attacks by Islamist militants. On Jan. 27, days after his inauguration, Trump indefinitely banned refugees from Syria and temporarily banned refugees from all other countries. Federal courts have ruled against the ban, placing it on hold as Trump appeals the rulings. The ruling impacted thousands of families, including Ali's.
