Gustavo Gómez on the Right to Protest

Jamie Kneen Communications and Outreach Coordinator responsible for: strategic research, social media, and public engagement; our Africa program, environmental assessment, and uranium mining.

In Argentina, the movement to protect the environment has moved from the fringes and the university classroom, to communities concerned for their well-being, to the court room. Mr. Gómez discusses the challenges and his hopes for his country’s future. He also provides an interesting insight into the effectiveness of calling for justice from the judges hearing environmental cases, arguing that public attention helps counter-balance the behind-the-scenes influence often wielded by companies.
