Honduran Army Murder Indigenous Leader Resisting Dam In Rio Blanco

As free citizens, we have the right to call for change, especially if the world around us has turned for the worst. Unfortunately, the path towards change will not be that easy. For one, advocating for change in our society is actually a bit more complex than anyone has thought it would be. Electing new leaders in public posts may not equate to real change, especially if we fail to see the truth in these people. We might be seeing a different face speaking in front of us as our leader. Likewise, if the current political system in place continues to propagate the same oppressive policies that burden the people, these efforts to call for change are just useless.

Many people have actually gone an extra mile on their quest to change the system. Some have actually decided to take up arms and fight for what they believe is right. In the first place, resistance only happens when state forces are the ones that oppress the people that they ought to protect. For example, an indigenous group in Rio Blanco, Honduras fighting the government to build a dam in their homeland faces harassment due to their continued resistance. Unfortunately, no matter how much the group pleads, they are never heard. The worst part is that the leader of this indigenous group was allegedly killed by the Honduran army.

Here at Systemic Capital, we strive to bring you both sides of an important issue. Fresh and reliable information in the times of deceit and divisiveness can be our tool to fight our own struggle as misinformation and lack of knowledge of often become a reason of our oppression.
