DemocracyNow.org - We're joined from the Rio+20 Earth Summit in Rio by Nnimmo Bassey, executive director of Environmental Rights Action in Nigeria, chair of Friends of the Earth International. "The leaders came to Rio with clearly very low ambitions, probably with the desire to block grievances on any issue that would not be of particular benefit to them or their countries," Bassey says. "They've come up with a draft agreement that is shallow, that is hollow, that doesn't describe or deal with the root causes of the multiple crises that the world is confronted with right now."
