Nature is not Mute

Reality paints a dead nature.

The catastrophes are called natural, as if nature was the tormentor and not the victim, while the climate goes crazy and so do we.

5th of June is world environment day. A good day to celebrate the constitution of Ecuador, that in the year 2008, for the first time in the history of the world, recognized nature as a subject with rights.

It sounds strange, this idea that nature has rights, as if it was a person. On the other hand, it sounds perfectly normal that the big corporations of the United States have human rights. And they do, by Supreme Court decision, since 1886.

If nature was a bank, she would have already been saved.

-By Eduardo Galeano, Uruguayan Author.

Translated into English by me.


La Realidad pinta naturalezas muertas.

Las catástrofes se llaman naturales, como si la naturaleza fuera el verdugo y no la víctima, mientras el clima se vuelve loco de remate y nosotros también.

5 de Julio es el dia del medio ambiente. Un buen día para celebrar la nueva constitución de Ecuador, que en el ano 2008, por primera vez en la historia del mundo, reconoció a la naturaleza como sujeto de derecho.

Suena raro esto de que la naturaleza tenga derechos, como si fuera persona. En cambio, suena de lo mas normal que las grandes empresas de los Estados Unidos tengan derechos humanos. Y los tienen, por decisión de la Suprema Corte de Justicia, desde 1886.

Si la naturaleza fuera banco, ya al habrían salvado.

-Eduardo Galeano

One Love

Playing for Change is a multimedia music project, created by the American producer and sound engineer Mark Johnson with his Timeless Media Group, that seeks to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music.Using mobile recording equipment, they record local musicians from across the world performing the same song, interpreted in their own style and what emerges are unique, inspiring, beautiful and magnificent works of art. In this video they re-create one of Bob Marley’s greatest song which celebrates the love inside each of us. We can achieve far greater things as a united human family than we ever could apart.  Let love be our uniting force. One Love. 

Positive Integrity



 

“The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.”

– Bob Marley
