In honour of Berta Cáceres’s 50th birthday, Jófríður Ákadóttir (JFDR), Sandrayati Fay and Damien Rice wrote a song inspired by Berta’s life and work. The song was released in April 2021. The proceeds of the song go to the COPINH (Council of Popular and Indigenous Organizations of Honduras), the organisation founded by Berta in 1993. A video of the song illustrated by The Fake Pan was later released in collaboration with COPINH, Art for Amnesty and Amnesty International.
