Berta Cáceres, Indigenous leader of the Lenca people, renowned environmentalist and defender of human rights in Honduras, was assassinated in her home in La Esperanza, Honduras.

She had received several death threats most recently for her involvement in the just causes of the Honduran people. She was a recipient in 2015 of the prestigious Goldman Environmental Award.

Cáceres was an outspoken opponent of the military coup that overthrew the democratically-elected government of Mel Zelaya in June 2009, and denounced U.S. military bases in Honduras. The coup took place 6 months into the administration of President Obama, with the support of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

We will gather at Senator Feinstein's office, and demand U.S. Out of Honduras, Stop funding death squads and terror in Honduras and we will express solidarity with the Honduras people in struggle.
