The Center for Latin American Studies, U C Berkeley presents:
The legacy of a slain activist
Join CLAS for a screening of a documentary on the legacy of Berta Cáceres, the indigenous Honduran environmental activist whose defense of her people’s lands successfully pressured the world’s largest dam builder to pull out of the Agua Zarca Dam at the Río Gualcarque. After winning the Goldman Environmental Prize in 2015, she was assassinated on March 3, 2016.
Contact Mirtha – she can take 3 in her car, or meet at Kroeber Hall.
After the screening, there will be a discussion featuring:
· Silvio Carillo, a filmmaker, producer, and the nephew of Berta Cáceres, and
· Roxana Altholz, an international human rights lawyer, and author of the recent Dam Violence: The Plan That Killed Berta Cáceres.
All CLAS screenings are free and open to the public. No ticket required.
