Activist Berta Caceres Murdered for Protecting Mother Earth

Sad, terrible news,  this just makes me cry! I cry for all her people, I cry for all who speak out against injustice and greed. I cry for me and for you, what is our future? This is so sad, how many will have to die...or will we all die because we won't change....

In Berta words, 

"Let Us WakeUp! Let Us WakeUp humankind. We are out of time"

"In a country with growing socioeconomic inequality and human rights violations, Berta Cáceres rallied the indigenous Lenca people of Honduras and waged a grassroots campaign that successfully pressured the world’s largest dam builder to pull out of the Agua Zarca Dam.

She was the South & Central America winner of the 2015 Goldman Environmental Prize, the world's largest award for grassroots environmental activists."
