Action for Berta!
Canadians enjoy a country of unparalleled natural beauty and a wealth of resources. We also enjoy the freedom to speak out against those who may seek to exploit or destroy these gifts.
In Canada, a mother and patriot can challenge corruption, injustice and greed through peaceful protests in a fight to stop polluters from robbing her community and family from the clean water they all desperately need. In Canada, a mother fighting for what is righteous and just would return home to read to her children, tuck them into bed, and the next morning ready them for school.
On March 03, 2016, Berta Cáceres, passionate and tireless defender of Honduran waterways, put her children to bed, and was brutally murdered while they slept. A week later, her counterpart was also murdered as have more than 100 human rights and environmental advocates in Honduras since 2010.
Not a single case has been investigated or prosecuted!
Of whom much is given, much is expected and with all that Canadians have, it must be expected that we demand justice for Berta and the others whose lives were brutally taken for simply wanting clean water for their families, communities and country.
We the undersigned citizens of Canada urge Hon. Stephané Dion, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Michael Gort, Canadian Ambassador to Honduras demand justice through an exhaustive, independent and international investigation into
Berta's murder, and the murder of the nearly 100 others since 2010
