Constitution Reform and the Environment

Grenada Green Group

Grenada Green Group (G3) is not a political organisation. We just want a cleaner home, with the public enlightened about the connection between littering and dengue; littering and chikungunya; littering and Zika; littering and yellow fever, rats, pollution of soil and ocean; littering and the contamination of the oxygen that we breathe and the food that we eat. Littering and blocked drains, hence the decay of our roads. Littering working to destroy our tourist industry, upon which so many of us depend on. Also, penalties for those people who insist on fouling the place for the rest of us, as outlined in the 2015 Abatement of Litter Act.

So, what’s not to like about the following section of the proposed revision of the Rights and Freedoms Bill in the new Constitution? Without a clean environment, all other sections of the Constitutional Amendment become irrelevant.

CONSTITUTION OF GRENADA (RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS)(AMENDMENT) BILL, 2016

Duty of the State to protect the environment
18B. The State has a duty to protect and preserve the environment; not let it suffer degradation.

Right of the people to healthy environment
18C. (1) Everyone has the right to an environment that is not harmful to his health or well-being.

Remember this when you vote!
