Does Nature Have Rights?

As the UN conference on climate ramps up in Cancun, three civil society groups have released a report about nature and its right to be protected.

Entitled, “Does Nature Have Rights: Transforming Grassroots Organizing to Protect the People and the Planet,” the report was compiled by Global Exchange, the Council of Canadians and Fundacion Pachamama.

Just as the Pure Leadership trilogy has forecast, indigenous groups and community organizations have begun to assume the responsibility to represent the Earth and the rights of Nature in a legal manner.  This is “Rights of Nature” movement is a paradigm-shifting approach to legislating resource use. To read more about the release and to download your own copy of the report, visit the Pure News Network.
