Earth Justice: Corporate Rights vs. The Rights of Nature | Thomas Linzey and Mari Margil
Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness have long been held as the inalienable rights of the American people. Then why is it that “corporate personhood” consistently overrides the legal rights of citizens? And what about the rights of nature? Do rivers, mountains, whales – or ecosystems – have inalienable rights that guarantee their interests? Join innovative environmental attorneys Thomas Linzey and Mari Margil for breakthroughs on the ground that are redefining democracy. In the 21st century, is it time to move from a Declaration of Independence to a Declaration of Interdependence?
