The world mourns the loss of Berta Cáceres, an Indigenous woman who peacefully yet persistently resisted the destruction of waterways in Honduras for mining projects.
Berta Cáceres, a hugely influential environmental activist, Indigenous leader, and winner of the 2015 Goldman Environmental Prize, was murdered in her hometown of La Esperanza, Honduras, on March 3. She would have turned 46 the next day. It is a tragic ending to the life of this courageous woman who risked everything to protect her beloved homeland from desecration.
