    This forum focuses on the injustice that environmentalists face throughout the world in their fight to preserve the habitats, the environment, air, water and more. This forum will see individuals from Amnesty International, Lawyers Right's Watch Canada and more. We will be looking at specific case studies such as: Guatemala, Colombia, and the Philippines.
