Remembering Berta Cáceres, Assassinated Honduran Indigenous & Environmental Leader (VIDEO)
Honduran indigenous and environmental organizer Berta CÃ¡ceres has been assassinated in her home in Honduras. She was one of the leading organizers for indigenous land rights in Honduras. In 1993, she co-founded the National Council of Popular and Indigenous Organizations of Honduras, or COPINH.
For years, the group faced death threats and repression as they stood up to mining and dam projects that threatened to destroy their community. Last year, CÃ¡ceres won the Goldman Environmental Prize, the world’s leading environmental award. We hear CÃ¡ceres in her own words and speak to her nephew, Silvio Carrillo, and her longtime friend Beverly Bell.
