PBI-Honduras accompanies COPINH at anniversary gathering for Viva Berta Feminist Camp
On April 5, PBI-Honduras tweeted: “Today marks one year since the construction of the Viva Berta Feminist Camp. Yesterday PBI accompanied @COPINHHONDURAS @ForoDeMujeres_ @RedDefensoras @ofraneh and the Tierras del Padre Lenca Indigenous Community during the commemorative activities.”
On Facebook, PBI-Honduras added:
“We highlight the tireless spirit of the organizations that for three months dedicated their energy to building the camp and that today, a year later, continue standing firm in the demand of justice and the defense of human rights.”
On April 4, COPINH coordinator Bertha Zúniga Cáceres also tweeted: “One year ago, the Viva Berta Feminist Camp was set up as an expression of the search for justice for the sister of all #BertaCáceres.”
Criterio.hn also reports: “On the first anniversary of the Viva Berta Feminist Camp, they remembered the indigenous leader, Berta Cáceres and pressured the Judiciary to give strength to the Agua Zarca case with the prompt sentence of Roberto David Castillo Mejía, found guilty as co-author in the murder of the extinct environmentalist.”
Last year, Bertha also explained that the camp is an initiative of feminist organizations “to also accompany the demand for justice and ratify that this process is not only of interest to her daughters, her family or her organization COPINH, but also of the community of human rights in Honduras and outside Honduras.”
PBI-Honduras has accompanied COPINH since May 2016.
