Honduras delegation: The Anniversary of Berta Caceres' Murder: Land, Water and Life in Honduras
Join CRLN on a delegation to Honduras planned by our local partners, La Voz de los de Abajo. In 2016, internationally-known Indigenous environmental activist Berta Caceres was murdered for her attempts to stop the building of a hydroelectric dam on a river sacred to the Lenca people.We will participate in activities in commemoration of Berta's death. In addition, we will visit the CNTC (a national farmworkers rights organization) communities in La Paz whose land rights are threatened as well as other organizations and movements under attack for their human and land rights work. Other groups may include OFRANEH (organization of the Garifuna people), anti-mining groups in the north, LIBRE (one of the opposition political parties), COFADEH (one of the major human rights groups in Honduras), Radio Progreso/ERICSJ (an independent Jesuit radio station and study group) and more as our scheduling allows.
Date: March 1-7
Cost: $700-850 (cost will partially depend on how many people sign up) + airfare (currently about $450). Partial scholarships are available based on need.
