- Hi! Can I ask you a few questions?
Nice, thanks :)
- Are you ok for us to film and put it on my website EurOpinion?
It's an opinion website for Europeans.
(if no - you come here to be heard but you don't want to be heard on the internet? ;)
- Since when are you aware of the Climate problem?
- How did you learn about it? (Greta, or...)
- do you think television gives enough information? newspapers? the media?
- do you think politicians give it enough importance?
- did you learn something about it at school? Was that enough or should there be more?
- Someone said Climate "Change" does not express the problem
it should be called Climate Breakdown or Climate Disaster, to understand the seriousness
What do you think?
With this Awareness, now what Action?
- So now, what to DO? What Action with this Awareness?
- Will you wait untill the politicians do something or do you want to do something yourself?
- Ok, I tell you, Maybe you like it - at least you should know
I think what you want is an Ecocide Law to protect the Earth.
That destruction of nature is forbidden or punished.
Protect the Earth, save our Climate and Planet.
- Mission LifeForce - a non-profit organization that wants to turn Ecocide into an international crime
- ecocide = mass destruction of nature (main cause of climate breakdown - ecological desasters, deforestation, tar sands, minery, oil industry etc)
- International Crime = a crime recognized by UN, so in almost all countries, like Genocide
It's an initiative of Polly Higgins, a sweet, nice and very human scottish lawyer
The more MLF grows, the more pressure they can put on governments and politicians to recognize Ecocide as a crime...
You can be part and support for only 5 Euro and your email. When you sign up you become an Earth Protector, this is officially recognized in almost all countries. And its for the rest of your life, without any further action or payment (unless you want ;).
Nice examples from Holland:
Urgenda, climate case against government
Fossiel Vrij, going after Shell in its home town
And then, what? Well, in Europa we have another great opportunity.
- Do you like Europa? The people, the landscapes, the different cultures?
Do you like to travel through Europa?
- You know there are EU elections in two months?
Don't you think it's another great opportunity to have your voice heard again?
- this time for "real" (with true changes in society - politics, law)
Are you interested in EU politics? Do you know how they work?
Doesn't matter - Climate and Nature have your priority, right?
So the only thing that is important in the elections for you is a party that gives priority to Climate and Nature too.
- Think about it. Seriously.
Thank you and enjoy!
