We condemn the brutal murder of Berta Cáceres

We condemn the brutal murder of Berta Cáceres an indigenous woman who led her people in the struggle against a dam coming up in their territory in Honduras.

Indigenous people across the world have been condemned to violence, in recent times the Lenca people of Honduras, the Koya adivasi people living along the banks of the Godavari fighting the Polavaram dam, the adivasis resisting state violence in Chhattisgarh or the adivasis fighting against the mining projects in Odhisa, Jharkhand, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

Berta was killed, yet we assembled across the globe with one voice – demanding justice and re-iterating that the struggle will continue in defence of indigenous people’s territories and way of life.

FSA joined the rally to protest the murder of Bertha outside the Honduras Permanent Mission to the UN, in New York on 17th March, 2016.
