What are some specific examples of the link between social justice and environmental degradation in Cuba, central Mexico, Venezuela, the Andes of Colombia and Ecuador, and/or northern Peru?
I'm looking for instances where a lack of social justice has led or contributed to environmental impacts - or the reverse, where a rise in social justice has led to a decrease in pollution, overfishing, clear-cutting, etc.
I know oil exploration in the upper Amazon is one good example. What are some more?
