File No





The right to breathe. The right to clean water. The right to wholesome food. In more than 180 nations, citizens are legally entitled to these essential elements of life - but not in Canada or the United States. The Green Rights multimedia project believes in the human right to a healthy environment, and Mother Nature's right to be respected and protected. Green Rights reports on the legal battles going on in nations around the world: The Philippines, Argentina, The Netherlands, and Ecuador. This film is written and narrated by Silver Donald Cameron, a Canadian journalist, playwright, author, and university teacher whose writing focuses on social justice, nature, and the environment.
