Castillo Mejía is the executive president of the company building the dam which Berta campaigned against (see also message from 2016-03-08; go with the mouse pointer to 'update').

Every year more than 100 environmental activists and people defending their land are assassinated (message from 2016-06-20). Demand a better protection of indigenous environmental and human rights activists from the Foreign Secretary of the EU, Federica Mogherini.

The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) order allowing internet providers to slow down and block content at their choosing leaves the public without protections from corporate censorship, and leaves small businesses without the ability to compete with larger sites and services. The effects on free expression and innovation will be devastating.
