I’ve just signed a petition calling on world leaders to to back an international law of Ecocide at the Rio+20 Earth Summit in June this year.
” We call on you to make ecocide the 5th International Crime Against Peace Life on Earth as it is now cannot survive if we continue to treat our environment as we are currently doing. Take this opportunity to back strong measures to make ecocide a crime, to protect humanity and the Earth.”
If you want to sign it, you can find the petition on the Avaaz website.
This is a video explaining how a law against ecocide would work.
