An environmental activist from Honduras has won the 2016 Front Line Defenders Award.

Ana Mirian Romero had her home burned down and was beaten by police for protesting in her native country.

Romero has been active in opposing the installation of the Los Encinos hydro-electric dam on indigenous land in Honduras.

She was presented with the award at a ceremony in Dublin's City Hall this morning.

Director of Front Line Defenders Mary Lawlor said Ana Mirian has been through a lot for her cause.

"Her house was burned down in January, and her children she's had to take out of school because they've been intimidated," she explained.
