The Sustainability Bill of Rights will soon be up for consideration by the Santa Monica City Council and needs support.
Putting needs of people and natural ecosystems like water, food, energy, air, soil and climate above corporate interests lies at the heart of this measure. Issues like these are under attack by the emergence of the corporate world and corporate mentality, whose interests often don’t parallel that of citizens. This is particularly true now as the courts have given corporations free-speech rights, as if they were individuals.
So, stand up for nature. Support the Sustainability Bill of Rights.
