Polly Higgins

Do you consider mass destruction of nature a crime?

PLAY VIDEO ►►► Ecocide is a Crime - Polly Higgins

Since forever big industry has been practically free to destroy nature, the climate and the Earth without any limit or consequences.

 

Now, an ambitious initiative to protect nature and the Earth where it really counts has been taken by Scottish lawyer Polly Higgins with Mission Lifeforce.

In this video she explains why Ecocide (mass damage and destruction of nature by big industry) is a problem we eventually all will face and why it is essential that United Nations adopt an International Ecocide Law to make it a crime at the same level as war crimes or genocide. This way industry would at least have to pay the damage when they cause the destruction of nature.

"We have a system set up here that is putting the interest of the share-holder first. By law! We put profit first in essence. And when we put profit first we fail to even look to the consequences."

How is it that we haven't criminalized mass damage and destruction of the Earth?

A law to make ecocide an international crime?

PLAY VIDEO ►►► Mission Lifeforce - protectors of the Earth

To accelerate the process of turning ecocide into the fifth international crime against peace Mission LifeForce offers all the people in the world the chance to be part of it and support it for life, in less than getting a hamburger menu both in time and expenses. This also helps increase the legal backup of the front-line activists in case they get arrested. Those who are interested in preserving a healthy planet as our natural living environment can become an "Earth Protector", officially and legally recognized in almost all countries of the world.

Only when ecocide is fully stopped our Earth can maintain and maybe even recover its natural splendour as shown in this beautiful nature and music video (credit).
