XRISN Special: Conservation vs Human Rights with Stephen Corry (21/05/2021)

Alejandra Piazolla from XR's Internationalist Solidarity Network co-hosts this show with Marijn where they are confronted with the terrible truth of nature conservation's track record of human rights violations. Their guest is Stephen Corry, former CEO of human rights organisation Survival International, who has a long standing history of campaigning against land grabs and evictions in the name of conservation. They hear shocking examples where indigenous people have been evicted from their lands in the name of 'nature conservation', establishing nature parks that the original inhabitants no longer have access to. They discuss the controversial '30 by 30' policy proposed by world leading conservation organisations which would see 30% of the world protected, but will result in land grabs and the displacement of thousands, if not millions of people, fears Corry.
