 On July 15, 2013, indigenous campesino Tomas García was murdered by Honduran soldiers in the town of Rio Blanco while he protested a hydroelectric dam which was slated to be built on top of his community’s main water source. Following his funeral I travelled with the legendary indigenous activist Berta Cáceres and other indigenous leaders back to Tegucigalpa, flying by military bases as the rain poured down and a police patrol vehicle trailed us to “provide security.” It’s a trip I knew I would never forget, emblematic of bitter land struggles being waged in Honduras.
