ECOCIDE IS A CRIME CAMPAIGN * MISSION LIFEFORCE * CONSCIENTIOUS PROTECTORS, GREAT BRITAIN
“Right now, ecocide (destroying the Earth) is legally permitted. Help us make it a crime. There is nothing more powerful you can do with two minutes and a fiver.”
Jojo Mehta and Polly’s legal team continue to polly-nate the world with making the Ecocide, destruction of ecosystems, the 5th Crime Against Peace, putting perpetrators like CEOs, heads of state and investors on trial; like we today do with people committing slavery and genocide.
However, an even more important effect is that once ecocide is illegal, governments can no longer subsidize dangerous industries with countless billions of tax money, which will put an end to these anti-economic ventures.
This step from moral crime to legal crime marks our shift to the next level sustainable society, which recognizes ‘nature as sacred’, like, after World War 1, respective World War 2, we re-learned to regard ‘the people’ and ‘the human being’ as sacred, and let go off monarchy and fascism, which appeared “unthinkable” before. Now, we let go of dirty, dangerous industries.
The legal framework exists since the foundation of the UNITED NATIONS’ International Criminal Court, when only 3 countries vetoed Ecocide to be included.
Some countries already have similar legislation at national level.
Earth Lawyer Polly Higgins has woven a global community of lawyers, politicians and citizens to cast this protective web of law around the Earth. Youth love it, they have superpowers to advance this, and schools are the perfect place of practice – to safeguard their Commons : the school garden and yard.
“Ecocide is loss or damage to, or destruction of ecosystem(s) of a given territory(ies), such that peaceful enjoyment by the inhabitants has been or will be severely diminished.”
“Serious harm to the Earth IS preventable: When government ministers can no longer issue permits for it, when insurers can no longer underwrite it, when investors can no longer back it, when CEOs can be held criminally responsible for it, the harm will stop.”
