Second winner of environmental prize killed months after Berta Cáceres death

Second winner of environmental prize killed months after Berta Cáceres death | World news | The Guardian – The Honduran indigenous leader, Berta Cáceres who received the Goldman prize in 2015, was murdered in March 2016 after years of death threats and intimidation linked to her campaign against an internationally financed hydroelectric dam. Her death came after at least 122 activists were murdered in Latin America in 2015 while trying to protect natural resources from environmentally destructive mega-projects such as dams, mines, tourist resorts and logging, according to research by the NGO Global Witness. In all, 2015 was the deadliest year on record for environmental activists globally with at least 185 killed.
