On March 2, 2016, environmental activist Berta Caceres was assassinated in Honduras. Leaked court documents suggest Berta's murder was planned by military intelligence specialists linked to the country’s U.S.–trained special forces. Global Witness calls Honduras the deadliest country in the world for environmental activism.
Today, Rep. Hank Johnson (GA) re-introduced the Berta Caceres Human Rights In Honduras Act, calling for the suspension of U.S. military and police aid to Honduras until human rights violations committed by Honduran security forces cease and their perpetrators are brought to justice.
