In this interview with Melanie Strickland from Wild Law UK, we talk about recognising the rights of nature, hopes and fears for the upcoming Rio+20 Earth Summit, how communities can fight back against corporations using Community Rights Ordinances and how all this might connect to the global Occupy movement. 50 minute live interview broadcast on ResonanceFM on 27 February 2012.
International lawyer Polly Higgins has devoted her life to a single client – the Earth. Here she talks to Phil England about her campaign to make Ecocide the fifth international Crime Against Peace; why the UN climate talks are failing; and how an Ecocide law could be one of the tools that helps us make the Great Transition from fossil fuel dependency to a clean energy future. 90-minute special for ResonanceFM.
