Let's get to work
It's time to #BeeBold and take action in our own backyards and beyond.
Our cover story discusses what happens when environmental defenders from around the world defy the rules or when the rule of law fails them. They take action because their government, multinational corporations or other entities threaten their family, their community, their environment or their way of life. These defenders are being attacked and sometimes killed.
Recently in Honduras, Berta Cáceres — a dear friend of Friends of the Earth, a Goldman Environmental Prize winner, an environmental activist and indigenous leader of the Lenca people and co-founder and coordinator of the Council of Popular and Indigenous Organizations of Honduras (COPINH) — was murdered. Her death sparked international outrage over human rights abuses in Honduras and the lack of justice for activists that are slain, imprisoned or harassed around the world.
