On April 22nd 2019 – Polly Higgins, one of the most inspiring figures in the green movement, died aged 50. For those who don’t know of Polly she dedicated her life to finding a way to create a legal duty of care for the Earth with the aim to impose a legal duty on governments to protect the public from dangerous industrial practices.
Right now, ecocide (destroying the Earth) is legally permitted.

WHAT IS ECOCIDE?
ECOCIDE is serious loss, damage or destruction of ecosystems, and includes climate and cultural damage.
We believe ECOCIDE should be recognised as an atrocity crime at the International Criminal Court – alongside Genocide, War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity. ~ www.stopecocide.earth/ecocide
