Berta Cáceres, Honduran indigenous/environmental organizer and enemy of the Clinton-backed regime, was found assassinated in her own home.
The Goldman Environmental Prize winner and co-founder of the Council of Indigenous Peoples of Honduras (Copinh), was one of the most respected activists in a country that has one of the highest murder rates in the world.
Police claim this was the result of an attempted robbery on Wednesday, March 2nd, but Cáceres’ mother disagrees.
“I have no doubt that she has been killed because of her struggle and that soldiers and people from the dam are responsible, I am sure of that. I hold the government responsible,” the 84 year-old said on radio Globo at 6.
“The dam” she refers to is one of Central America’s biggest hydropower projects, the Agua Zarca cascade of four giant dams in the Gualcarque river basin. Berta was the leading opposition to the multinational project.
Berta’s mother wasn’t the only skeptic when it came to the police narrative, by Thursday night violence had erupted throughout Honduras even after President Juan Orlando Hernández promised to bring the assassins to justice.
Riot police were also brought out to The University of Honduras in an attempt to calm down rock-throwing students.
This comes as no surprise in a country infamous for leading the world in murdered activists, as well as only solving twenty percent of its homicide cases.
On June 28, 2009, when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, democratically elected Honduran President Manuel Zelaya was overthrown by a military coup. The United Nations, the European Union, and the Organization of American States condemned the coup, and on July 5, Honduras was suspended from the OAS.
On August 7, fifteen House Democrats, led by Rep. Raúl Grijalva, sent a letter to the Administration which began, “As you know, on June 28th, 2009 a military coup took place in Honduras,” and said: “The State Department should fully acknowledge that a military coup has taken place and follow through with the total suspension of non-humanitarian aid, as required by law.”
Hillary Clinton however did not suspend U.S. aid, claiming that it was unclear whether or not a coup had taken place.
This of course was another bold faced lie by Hillary, as her emails clearly show.
Not only did the State Dept. have knowledge of the coup taking place, but it was complicit in assisting the new regime through any backchannel available.
She even contacted lobbyist and former President Clinton adviser Lanny Davis, the same guy who defended Bill Clinton during his impeachment proceedings, to try and talk with de facto Honduran president Roberto Micheletti.
In another direct tie to the United States, SOA Watch reported that four of six generals tied to the coup were trained at The School of The Americas (SOA).
For those unfamiliar with the SOA, it is a U.S. based institute known for scores of human rights violations and death squads.
Former Panamanian President, Jorge Illueca, stated that The School of The Americas was the “biggest base for destabilization in Latin America.”
With a knowledge of the SOA’s past it is obvious that the U.S. orchestrated this coup to destabilize Honduras and bring in a U.S. friendly regime.
This tactic has been played out throughout history, time and time again. See John Perkins’ “Economic Hitman” for a reference guide to this type of operation.
Since the coup took place Honduras’ homicide rate has risen by 50 percent, before the coup it already had the highest rate in the world.
In particular, land and environmental activists have been targeted, due to opposing the pillaging of their land by foreign interests who have now been given the green light to rape mother earth.
Honduras has witnessed an explosion of environmental mega-projects that would uproot large groups of indigenous people.
Almost 30 percent of the country’s land has been set for mining concessions, creating a demand for cheap energy to power future operations.
In order to accomplish this, the government approved hundreds of dam projects around the country, privatizing rivers, land, and destroying communities.
With an entire coup operation and environmental takeover on the line, combined with knowledge of the Clinton family murder trail, it is by no means a stretch to imagine a direct order of assassination by Hillary.
How many more Berta Cáceres’ will have to perish before something is done to hold the people responsible for this mess accountable?
As an answer to this question, I leave you with a quote from Berta herself:
“We must undertake the struggle in all parts of the world, wherever we may be, because we have no other spare or replacement planet. We have only this one, and we have to take action.”
