On March 2, gunmen shot and killed internationally-renowned human rights and environmental defender Berta Cáceres in her home in La Esperanza, Honduras. Her murder is a tremendous loss for Honduras, the region, and around the world for all those working for a more just and sustainable world.
An exhaustive and impartial investigation into the attack is critical to ensure that the perpetrators – AND architects – of Berta’s murder are brought to justice.
Please send a letter to Honduran and embassy authorities demanding security for Berta's family and COPINH members, and to halt the criminalization against COPINH.
Dear [Decision Maker],
