Berta Ca'ceres in Defense of Water Rights:
Reducing Energy Discussion 3.10.21
2016, after successfully organizing opposition to the Agua Zarca Dam in
Honduras, Berta Ca'ceres was murdered in her home. Corporations continue to
invest in energy production, including for hydro, solar and wind power. Each of
these systems extensively impacts ecosystems and nearby communities from their
cradles to their graves (during their manufacture, operation and discard).
This March 10, 2021 webinar featured Nina Lakhani, who has written articles and a book about Berta Ca'ceres, and others who spoke about the political situation in Latin America, and the ecological impacts of dams. As a co-sponsor of this webinar, Katie Singer spoke briefly toward the end. She asks, "What will electricity be used for--for bitcoin? for a Facebook data center? for 5G? to recharge electric vehicles? to power smelters?"
Here's the link to the March 10, 2021 discussion featuring Nina Lakhani,
Judy Ancel, Dan Hellinger and Don Fitz:
