Assassination Attempts Made On Environmentalists In Honduras

A 2015 report by Global Witness declared Honduras as the world’s most dangerous country for environmental activists. 

Berta Cáceres, a Honduran indigenous environmental activist and a leader for the group Civic Council of Popular and Indigenous Organizations or COPINH, was murdered in March. Last June, we spoke to one of her successors, Tomas Gómez Membreño. Recently, an attempt was made on his life and some of his colleagues. 

We get an update from Matt Ginsberg-Jaeckle, a community organizer and member of the Chicago-based human rights group La Voz de Los de Abajo. Ginsberg-Jaeckle worked with Cáceres for nearly two decades.
