THE GREEN RIGHTS TRANSCONTINENTAL READING AND SCREENING TOUR
A Film, A Book, A Journey
The Green Rights Multi-Media Project
The right to breathe. The right to clean water. The right to wholesome food. Air, water, food – these are the sources of life. Without them, we die. And in most nations – more than 180 nations, in fact – citizens are legally entitled to these essential elements of life.
But not in Canada or the United States.
And that's what the Green Rights multi-media project is all about: the human right to a healthy environment, and Mother Nature's right to be respected and protected.
The citizenship of North Americans is hobbled because we don't have these green rights.
Canadians and Americans literally don't know what they're missing. So we're telling the dramatic stories of how citizens use those rights in other countries – and are fighting for them here.
Green rights are among humanity's most powerful tools for protecting and repairing the natural world. The overall Green Rights project (www.GreenRights.com) includes films at three lengths – 10 minutes, 45 minutes, 90 minutes – plus extended online interviews between Silver Donald Cameron and 15-20 major figures in the international environmental rights movement.
It also includes Cameron's new book, Warrior Lawyers: From Manila to Manhattan, Attorneys for the Earth, now in the press. The Films The Green Rights films vividly portray remarkable legal battles in nations around the world: dramas in the courts and on the land.
In Argentina, the Netherlands, Ecuador, the Philippines and elsewhere, devoted citizens and courageous lawyers take on national governments and international corporations – and win. The films, narrated by Silver Donald Cameron, also tell stories of Canadian and American citizens, activists and Natives who are fighting vigorously for the recognition of those rights.
