A deadly occupation: Environmentalists in Honduras
One year ago, environmentalist Berta Cáceres was murdered in Honduras – most likely because she was fighting a controversial dam project. The crime has yet to be solved and killings in the country continue.


 In the midst of all this, calls for rewriting the Constitution, long a cause of the right, are getting louder. Both Shinzo Abe and Shintaro Ishihara, leaders of the two main opposition parties, have declared constitutional revision a priority. Many of my friends in Hiroshima fear that this will be used to discard Japan’s peace clause, opening the possibility of militarization and even nuclear arms.

The Greens have overtaken the Social Democrats as Germany’s largest
opposition party, according to a new poll. If national elections were held

The Greens
Environmentalist political party founded in West Germany in 1979. Initially it arose out of protests against nuclear power in Germany in the 1970s, and later it embraced all forms of environmentalism. In 1979 about 250 ecologist and environmentalist groups merged, and the first "green" representative was elected to the state parliament in the West German state of Bremen. The following year the organization officially formed itself as a federal party. It called for the dismantling of the Warsaw Pact and NATO and the demilitarization of Europe. It first won representation in the national parliament in 1983. It experienced almost constant ideological tensions between its left wing and a more pragmatic faction. In 1989 a Green Party opposed to reunification was established in East Germany. In 1993, following German reunification, the Greens and Alliance '90, a coalition of various grassroots organizations, agreed to merge. From 1998 to 2005 the Green Party held national political power as a junior coalition partner in the government headed by Social Democratic Party leader Gerhard Schröder.
