Berta Didn’t Die, She Multiplied! – ¡Berta no se murió, se multiplicó!

October 17, 2018

3:30 PM - 5:00 PM



Presented by the UIC Latino Cultural Center and community partner La Voz de los de Abajo

After Berta Cáceres' assassination in 2016, many campesinxs have mobilized and taken to the streets to chant “Berta Didn't Die, She Multiplied,” demand justice, and indigenous sovereignty. This documentary highlights how the Indigenous Lenca and Afro-Indigenous Garifuna people of Honduras challenge capitalism, patriarchy, racism, and homophobia. Join us and learn how these groups work together to raise awareness on the importance of accessing clean water and stopping the privatization of natural resources.

Help continue Berta’s legacy!
