“man’s environment, the natural and the man-made, are essential to his well-being and to the enjoyment of basic human rights–even the right to life itself.” UN
Bilang pagpapatuloy ng ating Mokong year-ender wrap up mula sa http://mokongperspektib.wordpress.com/2014/12/26/10-human-rights-issues-ng-2014-no-10-climate-justice-campaign-yolanda-rehabilitation-etc/ , pumunta naman tayo sa ika-9 na pwesto para sa pinaka-tinangkilik na kampanya ng mga mambabasa ng HRonlinePH.com para sa taong 2014 ay ang “#HUGATREE ON EARTH DAY 2014” ng Philippine Misereor Partnership, Inc. (PMPI).
“The idea is very simple. Supporters of the cause will just post online a picture of themselves hugging a tree. They could post it on Facebook, on their own blog, on Twitter, or wherever so long as it can be seen by the public online. To generate bandwagon effect and to monitor the success of the campaign, we will use the hashtag #HUGaTree.
It is optional for the poster to explain why he/she is participating in the campaign, why he/she chose a particular location or tree, or anything that could add hype to the campaign. It is highly encouraged that the members of our network explicitly connect their explanation to mining, sustainable agriculture or climate change.
April 20-22: Uploading of individual pictures in support of the campaign”

Kung anupaman ang mahalaga ay wala namang nahigad sa mga nag-#HugATree. Wala nga ba?
