7:08 Silvio Carillo - The Murder of Berta Caceres

Last year Berta Caceres, a Honduran human rights activist, won the Goldman Environmental Prize - widely considered the world's leading environmental award. At the time the Guardian newspaper wrote that the odds of her survival, let alone success, could hardly be more stacked against her. It was a prescient observation, on Thursday 3 March Berta Caceres was murdered in her home. Her nephew, documentary film-maker, Silvio Carillo decided against attending her funeral and instead travelled to Washington DC to lobby politicians, who he holds partly responsible for his aunt's death, to stop supporting the Honduran regime.
