Default Song for Berta

In honour of Berta Cáceres's 50th birthday today,

Jófríđur Ákadóttir (JFDR), Sandrayati Fay and Damien Rice wrote a song inspired by Berta's life and work.

Berta was an Indigenous Lenca land defender, from Honduras, who was murdered 5 years ago.

The injustice of her death feels like it became an emblem of strength for community to gather with unwavering defence in support of what she believed in,

with a call for humankind to wake up and protect the environment.

All proceeds go to Copinh.
copinh.org/en/

Here's a link to buy this wonderful new song:

Jófríđur Ákadóttir (JFDR) is one of the two twin sisters involved in Pascal Pinon's music.

Berta was a Honduran environmental activist and indigenous leader who was murdered in 2016.
