Green Justice, can the law save the planet?

52’ | EN/FR | HD | 2020

Our planet is burning and NGOs seem to be overwhelmed by the number of catastrophic situations to manage… As soon as one fire goes out, another one is lit on the other side of the world.

While Greenpeace had obtained a moratorium on deforestation in the Amazon, Bolsonaro’s coming to power was enough to undo the long and patient work of the NGO. Now, activists of a new kind are planning to file a complaint against the Brazilian dictator, in the name of nature. Advocates and lawyers are taking over; white-collar rangers whose clients are rivers, forests and wildlife. They militate for nature to be recognised as a legal entity, in order to file a complaint on its behalf and represent it in court. They look for all the loopholes in the laws and attack the enemies of nature on their own ground.

We follow these militants of a new kind, in their fight against Goliath. We will see how they succeed where NGOs fail, how they thwart the strategies of multinationals and states. For many, green justice today represents one of the best hopes, if not the last, for saving our future on Earth.
