Who Killed Berta Cáceres? by Nina Lakhani

Episode Summary

The murder of Honduran indigenous leader Berta Cáceres was the grand finale of years of terror by the company building the Agua Zarca hydroelectric dam—enabled and supported by state forces and security forces, by prosecutors, judges, and politicians. For journalist Nina Lakhani, Cáceres’s life and death is an emblematic story of what is happening all across Central America.
