On March 3rd, Berta Cáceres, the co-founder of the Consejo Cívico de Organizaciones Populares e Indígenas de Honduras, COPINH (Civic Council of Popular and Indigenous Organizations of Honduras), was murdered in her home.
EcoLogic did not work with directly with Berta or her organization. But her death shook us. It still shakes us. It puts front and center the risks that our partners in Mexico and Central America take on a daily basis in their efforts to protect nature and its life-giving resources. For this reason, EcoLogic joined the over 220 organizations calling for U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to support an independent investigation into Berta’s murder.
