The Legacy of Berta Cáceres

My thoughts: The assassination of Caceres is a horrific injustice and the way the US mainstream press covered her execution is shameful.  You can bet that if she had been killed in Venezuela, in Cuba, or in any country where the US government is actively engaged in regime change, her assassination would have been front page news day in and day out.

Their description: "Maria and Julio are joined by Nina Lakhani, an environmental justice reporter for The Guardian US and author of the new book Who Killed Berta Cáceres? They talk about the life and legacy of Berta Cáceres, an indigenous, Honduran, human rights defender and environmental activist. And, they dive into the systems of oppression — racism, misogyny, capitalism — that played a role in her murder."
