The law of Ecocide
The destruction of our environment is a crime. A crime for which those responsible should be held accountable.
This crime has a name: Ecocide.
Eco-cide derives from the Greek oikos meaning house or home and the Latin caedere meaning strike down, demolish, kill. It literally translates to killing our home.
Why we need it
•to act as one law to end different types of environmental destruction
•to hold decision makers directly liable
•to preserve and protect biodiversity
•to protect entire ecosystems, not just individual elements such as soil, air, fauna & flora
•to trigger the transformation to a green economy
•to honour our duty to future generations
•to contribute to a shift in values to give the earth its own rights
