In the lead up to next month’s trial in the murder of environmental rights activist Berta Caceres in Honduras, the LMC spends the hour with Nina Lakhani to get more details on those involved in her assassination. Nina Lakhani is an environmental justice reporter for the Guardian and the author of, “Who Killed Berta Caceres: Dams, Death Squads, and an Indigenous Defender’s Battle for the Planet.”
Often overlooked yet at the center in the fight against environmental racism, the LMC spends the hour with Jayson Porter and Yoalli Rodriguez on the Afro-Mexicano struggle for social and environmental justice. Jayson Porter is a PhD candidate of Mexican environmental history @ Northwestern University in Illinois and Yoalli Rodriguez is a PhD candidate in Latin American Studies @ the University of Texas in Austin.
The threat of global warming is now for the former Spanish colony of Guam. Not a few decades or generations into the future, but now. So the LMC speaks with Chamorro rights activist and writer Leilani Ganser about how Guam is fighting two fronts; the threat of global warming and how US colonialism stands in the way.
