International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples - 9th August
We shall be celebrating this Sunday by sharing a beautiful short film from Stop Ecocide supporter Kelly Roberts, From Harm to Harmony - the missing law to protect people and planet. It features indigenous resistance to toxic exploitation and deforestation in the Amazon, and highlights the need for ecocide law to protect the forest for the sake of all of us.
In the words of the film-maker: "This film is a prayer for us all to take responsibility and to stand up for what we believe in."
Voices include Patricia Gualinga (Sarayaku people), Oswando Nenquimo (Waorani people), Clare Dubois (Treesisters) and David Dene (UN Earth jurist).
The film was created in direct response to Polly Higgins’ call: ‘Dare to be Great’. It was originally premiered in The Hague last December and is dedicated to Polly’s memory. Feel free to share widely!
