We, the undersigned women and representatives of Women's organizations and civil society organizations across the Caribbean and its diaspora condemn the assassination of Berta Caceres. Berta was a courageous woman whose actions were inspiring to all those committed to social justice worldwide.

We demand that Gustavo Castro, witness to the Caceres murder, be allowed to return home to Mexico in safety immediately. Any further legal procedures that are still needed from him should be carried out in the Mexican embassy in Honduras.

We, along with all justice seeking communities globally, are carefully watching the actions of the authorities in Honduras in regard to this horrific murder.
