Human rights court held Peru accountable and mandated to pay damages to Peru mining town

Court of Human Rights decreed Peru to pay damages to residents of an Andean town for violations of their right to a healthy environment from years of air, water and soil pollution from a nearby mine.
Countries must submit their pledges under the Paris Agreement. Delivering the pledges, however, must be ensured and enforced through national laws and policies.

        It's heartening to see legal mechanisms being used to protect the right to a healthy environment and hold governments accountable for their actions.

          It set an important precedent for environmental justice. It should pay heavily for all the damage it has caused

              This is a great move!! It sets an important precedent for environmental justice. Mandating damages for years of pollution underscores the importance of upholding the right to a healthy environment and ensuring accountability in environmental matters.

                All the affected people deserve justice for all that they had to endure due the pollution of their environment by people who do not care about their well being.

                    I love how justice always catches up with those who cause destruction of the environment. The justice system actually works.
