2. The earth community is a democracy of all life
We are all members of the earth family, interconnected
through the planet's fragile web of life. We all have a duty to live
in a manner that protects the earth's ecological processes, and the
rights and welfare of all species and all people. No humans have
the right to encroach on the ecological space of other species and
other people, or to treat them with cruelty and violence.
