Sister in Honduras speaks on sustainability

Video transcript: {Along the same lines of what Anita said,} when we think about the concept of sustainability I think about how it affects my country in Honduras. In Honduras, the government is giving concessions of our land to multinational companies who are coming in and taking over different parts of our land. So many people have to leave our country now and go to the United States or other parts of the first world as migrants because they do not have a place to work anymore. In addition to that, many of the peasant farmers are being killed, some of them are being taken to court for protesting. There has been a general deterioration of conditions in terms of minimum wage and also deterioration of the environment. You see trash everywhere, there is a great deal of poverty.
