It is a violation of one of our most fundamental human rights because everything we have, including our own bodies (made of liquids, minerals and metals), come from the land.
The majority of people needs to take back our individual and collective roles as protectors and respectful users of lands. This majority also needs to recover the role of decision-makers on land management practices. It can be done on terres ensemble hautes alpes en anglais + a new kind of peaceful territories
