This Earth Day, Lets Defend Earth’s Defenders


This Earth Day, Lets Defend Earth’s Defenders

Silvio Carrillo, Jeff Conant

April 22, 2016 marks the 46th Earth Day – the one day each year when all of us are encouraged to recognize our fragile planet and find ways to live a little lighter on the land. It is beyond platitude to say that every day should be Earth Day -- but it is a good day to recognize that, throughout much of the world, where people depend directly on lands, rivers, forests and soils, defending the environment is not a luxury; it is a necessity of survival.


Berta Cáceres
I thought I saw your face in Lourdes
Last Thursday within swirls
Of whirling dervishes whirling
Head lashes whirling
To what they do not know
A hymn to not knowing
Holy Berta full of grace
Pray for us sinners
