Ecuador Constitution Recognizes 'Rights of Nature'

http://www.opednews.com/articles/...og-by-Rady-Ananda-080930-209.html

Excerpt:

On Sunday, two-thirds of the voters in Ecuador approved a new constitution that is the first in the world to recognize legally enforceable Rights of Nature, or ecosystem rights.  It also provides for pensions for stay-at-home mothers and free education for all through college.  With over one-third of the nation living in poverty, the constitutional changes are expected to alleviate suffering with short and long-term solutions.

SFGate reports that the new Constitution also broadens President Rafael Correa's powers, letting him run for two more consecutive terms, and allowing him to consolidate the 'citizen's revolution.'  Correa is expected to swiftly overhaul the judiciary, the Central Bank and other key institutions, giving the U.S.- and European-trained economist greater liberty to fashion what he calls a 'new political model.' Correa has not, however, nationalized telecommunications or electric utility companies.

I just this moment added a long comment at the site, so you might be interested at looking at it again.

My comment isn't about Ecuador, it is about our viability as a species.

Enjoy!
