Nature Represented

2018 · Maruri Grey for Sambito


The legal systems of the world treat species and ecosystems as OBJECTS and PROPERTY, leading to an economy coupled with the destruction of nature. To counteract this, a new Constitution was approved in Ecuador. This constitution became the first in the world to recognize the rights of ecosystems to exist, persist, regenerate and evolve. However, multinational companies continue to challenge the new laws to push for the fracking, drilling and mining of Ecuador and the planet´s ecosystems.
