AWARD-WINNING “GREEN RIGHTS” FILM TO SCREEN IN MAHONE BAY
When: May 19, 2017 at 7pm
Where: Mahone Bay Centre, 45 School St
Clean air and water—the source of life. In many nations, the law recognizes the legal rights of citizens to these essential elements of survival but not in Canada or the United States. And that’s what Green Rights is all about.
Green Rights: The Human Right to a Healthy World will be shown at 7:PM Friday, May 19, 2017 at the Mahone Bay Centre, 45 School St. The event is co-sponsored by the South Shore Chapter of the Council of Canadians and the Friends of Nature. It will be hosted by film writer and narrator Silver Donald Cameron.
Green Rights tells the stories of ordinary people and dedicated lawyers who are suing multinational corporations and unresponsive governments on behalf of future generations. And they are winning in places such as Argentina, the Philippines, Ecuador, and the Netherlands.
Cameron and film director Chris Beckett captured footage and compiled interviews from eleven countries on every continent except Antarctica. Cameron is also the author of the companion book Warrior Lawyers: From Manila to Manhattan, Attorneys for the Earth, which will be available at the event.
Admission is by donation. Light refreshments will be available.
