Professor of Medical Ethics and author THOMAS KERNS shows how the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and its two related internationally adopted documents - the Convention on Civil and Political Rights and the Convention on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights - can form an effective context for environmental activist campaigns. He outlines three strategies for organizers to follow and points to the effectiveness or California's Stop the Spray movement as a model.
