Activists disrupted the world’s largest mining convention to hold a vigil for the people killed for opposing Canadian mining projects around the world, including Bertha Cáceras – an Indigenous leader from Honduras who was assassinated in her home four days ago.
Update Otros Mundos Coordinator and Other Worlds’ board member Gustavo Castro Soto was the sole witness to the assassination of Berta Cáceres on Wednesday March 3, 2016.
