Report by Pennie Opal Plant and Shannon Biggs upon having just returned from Ecuador. Pennie Opal Plant is a member of Idle No More SF Bay Area. Shannon Biggs works at Global Exchange, and is the co-author of the recently published book, "The Rights of Nature".
Key leaders of the international human rights movement came together mid-January 2014 in Ecuador. The twofold purpose of the Summit was to analyze the experiences of communities in Ecuador, Bolivia, and United States that have already implemented “Rights of Nature” laws, and to devise a unified global strategy for advancing the Rights of Nature movement around the world. This movement draws on indigenous wisdom in positing a new jurisprudence that recognizes the right of nature in all its forms to exist, persist, evolve and regenerate.
