Why: Honduran activist Nelson Noe García Lainez was murdered on Tuesday, becoming the second member of the Indigenous group Civil Council of Popular and Indigenous Organizations of Honduras (COPINH) to be shot to death in Honduras the last two weeks. He was gunned down upon arriving at his home in the Rio Lindo community in the department of Cortés, less than two weeks after the shooting death of Berta Cáceres.
Berta Cáceres, winner of the prestigious Golman environmental prize, was assassinated in Honduras on Thursday, March 3, 2016. She was an Indigenous Lenca leader, and the coordinator and co-founder of COPINH. Berta was also a leading figure against the 2009 coup that overthrew the democratically elected government in Honduras. Since the coup the human rights situation in Honduras has deteriorated as human rights defenders and social movement leaders are systematically criminalized and routinely killed.

Join us to remember Nelson Garcia and Berta Cáceres and all those murdered for protecting their culture and the environment against corporate power.
