Pain and Rage for the Loss of Berta Cáceres
BY GUEST BLOGGER | March 7, 2016
The following is a message from Fr. Ismael Moreno Coto, S.J., regarding the brutal murder of Berta Cáceres, an internationally renowned Honduran indigenous and environmental leader.
Popularly known as Padre Melo, Fr. Moreno Coto is a Jesuit priest and human rights activist in his native Honduras. He directs Radio Progreso and E.R.I.C, whose work encompasses: grassroots radio programming; training on human rights, community organizing, and empowerment; the formation of leadership committed to social change; and aiding migrant families. Padre Melo spoke at the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice in 2014, and continues to be an important advocacy partner for ISN and Jesuit Conference of Canada and the U.S. as we advocate for human rights-oriented policies in Honduras and throughout the Northern Triangle of Central America.
