Skip to comments.UN document would give 'Mother Earth' same rights as humans (Bug, Animal & Plant Rights)
Posted on 04/12/2011 11:35:54 AM PDT by Red Badger
Bolivia will this month table a draft United Nations treaty giving "Mother Earth" the same rights as humans having just passed a domestic law that does the same for bugs, trees and all other natural things in the South American country.
The bid aims to have the UN recognize the Earth as a living entity that humans have sought to "dominate and exploit" to the point that the "well-being and existence of many beings" is now threatened.
The wording may yet evolve, but the general structure is meant to mirror Bolivia's Law of the Rights of Mother Earth, which Bolivian President Evo Morales enacted in January.
That document speaks of the country's natural resources as "blessings," and grants the Earth a series of specific rights that include rights to life, water and clean air; the right to repair livelihoods affected by human activities; and the right to be free from pollution.
It also establishes a Ministry of Mother Earth, and provides the planet with an ombudsman whose job is to hear nature's complaints as voiced by activist and other groups, including the state.
"If you want to have balance, and you think that the only (entities) who have rights are humans or companies, then how can you reach balance?" Pablo Salon, Bolivia's ambassador to the UN, told Postmedia News. "But if you recognize that nature too has rights, and (if you provide) legal forms to protect and preserve those rights, then you can achieve balance."
The application of the law appears destined to pose new challenges for companies operating in the country, which is rich in natural resources, including natural gas and lithium, but remains one of the poorest in Latin America.

The initial response should be to tear down the UN buildings around the world since they have destroyed mother earth.
More rights than the LIBERALS give a human FETUS! (shaking head)!!
Bolivia, with their open pit mining wants rights for Mother Earth?
What about bacterial rights?
Listerine == Zyklon B
What about virus rights?.......AIDs...........
It's not about elevating invertebrates to the level of human beings.
It's about lowering the status of human beings to the level of invertebrates.
That way, there is nothing immoral about the final solution to the inconvenient human being problem.
This is just global cap and trade and carbon credits dressed up in paganistic clothing.
We, the United Nations, have deemed that there are too many people on the is planet to maintain its health.
Therefore you are to report to the nearest human decontamination center as soon as possible.
Failure to do so will result in your forfeiture of all possible rights under the Mother Earth Treaty of 2012.
Have a nice day..............
Well, I’d be in favor of giving everyone remotely connected to the UN the same rights that bugs currently enjoy....
(and then, decriminalize DDT...)
They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator
We need some more acronyms here.
Brushing your teeth is Murder!
Showering is Genocide!
All those bacteria are killed. How can we let this continue?
You may argue that they are just single-celled critters, which only makes you a Sizeist, worse than a Racist.
Anyone who lives in Bolivia deserves a UN granted right to have equal statutory standing as any ground slug or gnat or hunk of moss.
Just what the heck are we supposed to eat?
Is this how Obama is going to put doctors out of business?
Trees and plants have a right to be free from carbon dioxide pollution!!!!
Does that include a baby or a fetus as the left calls the little child?
It's the anti-Church. Or, if you prefer (and more in keeping with the vision of Dag Hammerskjold), it's the UN-Church. Its destiny is sealed.
More nonsense from the America-Hating Free Trader Communist Globalists at the UN.
Sad part is that we have a lot of people that support these Unpunished Nazis
“Well, Id be in favor of giving everyone remotely connected to the UN the same rights that bugs currently enjoy....”
Unfortunately, it isn’t going to work that way). See post No. 7).
With rights come responsibilities - can the people of Japan sue mother earth for all the havoc associated with the earthquake and tsunami? Where do they go to collect damages?
And will mother earth be subject to capital punishment (or just indefinite confinement) for all the innocent souls she took in the aforementioned incidents?
This last sentence says it all.
In a world gone mad, it should not be a surpeise thet the most backward, ignorant countries of the world feel entitled to make rules to control everyone, including the USA.
First the muslim, now Bolivia. Do we need to join the madness?
The UN has outlived its usefulness. It is a total drain on the developed world. What are we thinking?
Right on point. It is the culture of death to humans. We are the bacteria in these people's minds. Their "mother earth" worship is not new but goes back to the beginning of civilization. "There is nothing new under the sun"--Ecclesiastes.
Send the UN Hq to Uganda out our country, end funding of these nitwits.
Smacks of this:
Throw the UN in a pit with lions, tigers and bears to prove their point.
Sometimes I have to wonder who is really behind the UN....
I have to sound like a Tin Foil Hat wearing weirdo, but lately a lot of the crap that comes out of the UN sounds like stuff that would come out of the mouth PR person from Mars who wants to use insidious plots to take over the world.
Alejandro Toledo (President of Peru, 2001-2006), doesn't count because he's educated and speaks fluent Spanish. From Wikipedia:
"Toledo is one of sixteen children of a family of indigenous campesinos of Quechua heritage... Later on, he attended Stanford University, where he received a master's in Economics, a master's in education, and completed his PhD in Economics of Human Resources (in 1993) at the Stanford University School of Education."
Well, he was created as an angel, has the name Lucifer, and is the enemy of mankind.
And which creatures are going to represent the other creatures in court?
Move the UN to Libya and let them have a back to nature life style, like craping in the ditch.
Natural ones, of course.
Interesting. No one gets it, yet. Some global socialist corporates devised water rights and bought ‘em all up in Bolivia, so that peasants there will always pay for their water, like rent. Those global corporate favored constituents are moving in the direction of culling the human population down to the fittest (fittest in their minds: the effete, women and a few short, effeminate men). They keeping competition down in Bolivia the same way that they do it here: by way of their phony environmentalist laws.
I’m in the middle of nowhere, and there’s no auto salvage yard within 80 miles. During a decreed cleanup effort, all of the scrap steel within a 100 miles went to China. Auto repair garages are only allowed in municipals far from here, where the leases are all owned by one entity and shockingly high (out of reach). ...no manufacturing of any kind allowed, not even one-man operations. There are business-government efforts to imprison a rancher, who lost some cattle during a rare, extreme winter (outlawing small ranching).
Enjoy the world plutocracy while you can, though, middle class zombies. The rolling defaults are about to put it down.
Start reading about the green revolution. Get a clue. Prepare.
I get it...........
He's the enemy of God. He loves mankind.................to death.............
The ACLU, of course...............Animal Civil Liberties Union.............
It and its hosts are already protected.
I just realized, theres really no auto salvage yard within 100 miles of here. Only those few of us, who bother with the complications of building self-sufficiency in energy systems, growing food (for ourselves) and repairing everything (including metal fabrication and cutting) while preparing in advance will stay. All who avoid seeing and thinking will move to the cities soon.
More info for those few who will be left.
On engines, use the following keywords.
build a [your vehicle make, engine displacement here] stroker
TECH: Windshield chopping with tile saw.
And study roll cage building.
It’s fun in the meantime and essential later on. Oh, and another role model for you young folks (see my other links to the rat rods of others).
And no, that’s not me. My rod is a stealthy sleeper—23 mpg, with another, uglier work in patient progress.
more commie assault on econonic progress
The nearest junkyard, er, automobile recycling facility, to us is 30 miles.
We used to have several within 5 or so.
I spoke to a former owner and asked what happened to all of them.
He told me the environmental regulations essentially made it impossible to operate and make a profit.
Add to this the fact that many such places are now owned and operated by national chains like Greenleaf, and others are owned by the insurance companies consortiums, and deal only with insurance companies, not the public.....
