Dear Global Exchange Supporter,
Global Exchange and fellow climate justice campaigners, environmentalists and social justice advocates from around the world are in Cancún, Mexico for the COP16 climate summit.
We came to Cancún to advocate for climate solutions that put the rights of people and planet in front of corporate profits and political posturing.
In Cancún we've participated in alternative forums, including the Diálogo Climático-Espacio Mexicano forum2 where we released the report, Does Nature Have Rights: Transforming Grassroots Organizing to Protect the People and the Planet, with the Council of Canadians and Fundacion Pachamama. The report sheds light on “the Rights of Nature”, a paradigm-shifting approach to legislating resource use. Illuminating essays by Uruguayan author Eduardo Galeano, social and environmental activists Maude Barlow, Shannon Biggs, and others demonstrate the need to broaden legal frameworks to recognize ecological limits, natural laws, and the interdependency of all life.
Stay updated with Global Exchange for on-the-ground stories and in-depth analysis of what is going on in Cancún. www.globalexchange.org/blogs/climatejustice.
Copies of the report “Does Nature Have Rights: Transforming Grassroots Organizing to Protect the People and the Planet” can be downloaded in English and a summarized version in Spanish at: www.globalexchange.org/doesnaturehaverights.
