Ecuador Gives 'Rights' to Nature

Ecuadoran Constitutional Assembly Approves Rights of Nature In New Constitution: press release
Ecuadorians Follow Lead of U.S. Communities, California charges ahead

Global Exchange FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE September 28, 2008 California—Today, the people of Ecuador voted to recognize the inalienable rights belonging to ecosystems in their new constitution. A set of groundbreaking articles that transform the status of nature from mere property to a rights-bearing entity are now incorporated into the national charter. Ecuador, one of the world's most biodiverse places, has set a precedent for other nations who have struggled against multinational corporations' exploitation, which has turned ecosystems and whole communities into sacrifice zones. The world watches as Ecuador takes its first step into what many people believe is the legal unknown.

The inspiration for today's remarkable achievement comes from municipalities across the United States where rural communities have already developed and adopted Rights of Nature ordinances, first developed by the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF).

Global Exchange rights-based organizer, Shannon Biggs, who partners with CELDF to assist communities in passing these new laws, is blazing new ground in California: "Ecuador and U.S. communities—from Santa Cruz, California to rural Pennsylvania—are passing laws that assert the rights of nature to be wild, and boldly changing the way we protect the environment." Biggs is organizing with Monterey, Nevada City and Santa Cruz, which are among the first California communities working to pass local laws to change not only nature's legal status nature, but also its culture.

"Slaves were once also considered property under the law. We needed to write new law in order to change the cultural understanding, the cultural climate. This is the kind of change represented by these local efforts, and now Ecuador.
re: Ecuador constitution to recognize "nature" as a rights bearing entity

Here is an extremely interesting and significant development in the globalization agenda, with serious implications. Ecuador has just written into their constitution new laws and regulations which, to quote the press release above, will "transform the status of nature from mere property to a rights-bearing entity". Ecuador is a member of UNASUR, the newly formed South American Union, which is right now integrating the legal system of the twelve member countries. (South American Union Merging Legal System [10-5-08]). With that, it is not difficult to see how this Ecuadoran precedent will be used to force these globalist control measures throughout the entire new South American regional system.

Mother earth aka 'gaia' has rights now, equal to and most likely above the rights of the dreaded human species. As these new laws begin to take effect they will be used to regulate everything and every person on the planet, all under the guise of environmentalism. It is a globalist ploy to gain absolute control of the earth, and is literally being forced into every sphere of society worldwide. For example, this article about a recent Hearing at the U.S. Congress (6-23-08):

"James Hansen, one of the world's leading climate scientists, will today call for the chief executives of large fossil fuel companies to be put on trial for high crimes against humanity and nature, accusing them of actively spreading doubt about global warming..."

Don't know anything about James Hansen, but many well-meaning although extremely ignorant people are devoting their lives to this morphing monster of a movement to "save the planet", absolutely unaware that the only thing they are doing is creating the very system that will be used to lock them down and micromanage every single aspect of their lives. This will become the global kingdom of 666 with the serfdom locked down in little green sustainable communities. Believe it or not. see links below, much more information there

Highly recommended, need to understand: radically altered lifestyle (what exactly will this mean?)
