to the assassinated Honduran activist Berta Cáceres and to activist Gustavo Castro Soto injured during the attack
Many of us have worked closely with Berta Cáceres and Gustavo Castro Soto and are shocked and horrified at this brutal crime against Berta aimed at shutting down her powerful activism
Early in morning, March 3, 2016, armed individuals assassinated Honduran activist Berta Cáceres, founder of *COPINH, after breaking into her home in La Esperanza, department of Intibucá in southwestern Honduras.
Gustavo Castro Soto was injured during the attack. Castro is Mexican and a member of the organization Otros Mundos Chiapas/Friends of the Earth-Mexico, the Mexican Network of Mining-Affected Peoples and the Mesoamerican Movement against the Extractive Mining Model (M4). Gustavo survived the attack and is key witness in the investigation into the murder of Cáceres.
