Call to Action
The Civil Council of Popular and Indigenous Organizations of Honduras (COPINH) calls on its communities and social movements, organizations and civil society to join us in the “Justice for Berta NOW” Days of Artistic, Cultural and Spiritual Mobilization that will take place September 1st-3rd in La Esperanza, Intibucá, Honduras.
The objective of this action is to share through mobilization, art and spirituality our cry for justice for the assassination of our compañera and sister Berta Cáceres Flores and to continue camping together in actions to denounce the participation of Honduran institutions, private enterprise and international banks in this crime.
During this action we will continue to demand that the state accept an Independent Investigatory Commission and the immediate and definitive cancellation of the deadly DESA-Agua Zarca project.
We also call on the international community to join in this action with public actions that show support for these demands.
