Washington, March 15 (RHC-teleSUR), -- Two activists scaled an art installation in front of the office of the U.S. Agency for International Development’s (USAID) information office in Washington D.C. as part of protest calling on the U.S. government agency to cut support with a controversial dam project in Honduras.
USAID is supporting the Agua Zarca dam on the Gualcarque River, which was one of the projects opposed by the Lenca people and famed Honduran Indigenous rights defender Berta Caceres, who was recently assassinated, allegedly as a result of her activism.
Caceres was awarded the prestigious Goldman Environmental Prize in 2015 for her organizing efforts against the Agua Zarca mine.
