Parallel to the UN FCCC December 2014 meetings in Lima, the Global Alliance intends to host its second International Rights of Nature Tribunal. The intention is to adjudicate a small number of cases aligned with the UN FCCC COP 20 priorities. Cases under review address the impacts of Climate Change, threats to the Great Barrier Reef, destructive oil and mineral extraction in Peru and South America, and protection of Defenders of the Earth such as the Bagua massacre that is on trial this year in Peru.
A distinguished panel of judges will hear the cases in Lima presented by the Prosecutor for the Earth and expert witnesses. The two day Tribunal will be held Friday 5 – Saturday 6 December at Hotel Bolivar, Jirón de La Unión in the historic district of Lima and a few minutes walk to the Alternative Peoples Conference near Parque de la Exposición in central Lima.
For more information on cases to be heard, objectives of the Tribunal and background, visit International Rights of Nature Tribunal – Lima.
