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.”
As corporate media & political figures compare the white-nationalist Capitol siege as something from a “banana republic”, the LMC spends the hour with Joseph Nevins to set the record straight on its true origins & meaning. Joseph Nevins is a professor of Geography @ Vassar College in New York. He is also the author of “A People’s Guide to Greater Boston.”
The LMC has the honor of spending the hour with Gregoria Flores, the former head of OFRANEH, the Black Fraternal Organization of Honduras. She shares with us the latest in the Garifuna struggle for social justice against the illegitimate Honduran coup government and what Black Lives Matter means to Afro-Hondurans.
