It’s not just humans who have rights, all beings do. The right not to be polluted is a right that belongs to us as well as to the Earth, to the air we breathe and to future generations. There are other rights which apply to us all, the problem is that they are not yet recognised internationally. But this is rapidly changing and you can find more information about the campaigns and progress of this fast developing arena of humanitarian and environmental law, called Earth Law.
This website is built by an activist group trying to pass a law which gives trees a right too. The idea is to transform our way of thinking from 'owning' to realizing that we 'owe a duty of care', as we all belong to the same ecological system and are dependent on one another.
