Human Rights and Climate

It is beyond dispute that climate change caused by human activity has negative impacts on human rights. Climate change has profound impacts on basic human rights in increasing numbers of countries, including the rights to life, food, health, water, income, and housing. With more EVs on the road, poor working conditions in lithium mines are a major issue.

The Green Party Motueka Branch is meeing to discuss  party’s role in highlighting human rights issues and in facilitating actions.  MP Golriz Ghahraman will join our meeting via zoom. Golriz is an Iranian-Kiwi.  Her career as a lawyer here and overseas focused on enforcing human rights and holding governments to account.  She has helped in the healing of communities after war and human rights atrocities, including empowering women engaged in peace and justice initiatives.

Aotearoa supported the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights but has been cautious in giving effect to them.  For example, the basic rights of women in Afghanistan and Iran have deteriorated, and we could be stronger international advocates and take additional refugees into NZ.  Within Aotearoa there are also new and ongoing human rights issues.

The meeting is in the Motueka Community House, 9 Greenwood Street, starting at 7.00pm. You can also join the meeting via Zoom at: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85171311840
