Make Ecocide equal to torture or genocide
Polly Higgens leads the global campaign for making Ecocide the 5th Crime Against Peace at the United Nations’ International Criminal Court. Why? It will put eco-criminal CEOs, politicians an investors into jail. That’s big!
Our world defined four international crimes: war crimes, genocide, torture and crimes against humanity. The Spanish judge Baltasar Garzón and the Scottish lawyer Polly Higgins are proclaiming that a fifth should be added to these very serious violations of international law: Ecocide
The two are working together to acquire enough support to get ecocide recognized as the wholesale destruction of our ecosystems and want this on the international political agenda.
Polly Higgins was declared insane when she told their audiences that the earth needs a lawyer.
Those who cause environmental devastation should be held liable. This also means they can get sued and punished.
Destruction of our ecosystems
Higgins was a trial attorney, but now, she spends all her time working as a legally eco-activist. Since 2011 she is the leading lady of the international movement against ecocide: the wholesale destruction of our ecosystems.
The militant lawyer combines compassion and charm with conviction and decisiveness. In special trainings she teaches people to use their own talents in a practical way for a sustainable earth.
Crimes against the earth
The world-famous investigative judge Baltasar Garzón as a lawyer strives to an international law that allows to recall and account big polluters and destroyers of nature. Garzón was the man behind the arrest of Augusto Pinochet in 1998.
Now he is focussing on crimes against the earth. Together with his daughter María he asks world leaders to protect the world against environmental crimes. Targets of this new international crime law are multinationals.
In 2015, the reporters followed Polly Higgins – and her earth guardians – on their missions. Because of the climate conference in Paris, this year offers a lot of opportunities to wake up the world.
