Every hand helps!!! Vote to end Ecocide
By End Ecocide in Europe / endecocide.eu
Nov 11, 2013
This is an action aimed to reach 1 million votes of EU citizens for a new law proposal to end the mass destruction of our planet. This is called Ecocide. Please join the Initiative!
 
 
What is ECOCIDE?
 
Eco-cide derives from the Greek oikos meaning house or home and the Latin caederemeaning strike down, demolish, kill. It literally translates to killing our home.
 

End Ecocide in Europe is a grass-roots initiative aimed at protecting ecosystems by making their destruction a crime for which those responsible can be held accountable. This crime has a name: Ecocide. Watch the animation and vote today to end ecocide.

The law of ecocide has the potential to trigger the transformation to a sustainable low-carbon world as most of the major causes of emissions (deep sea drilling, fracking, oil spills, open coal mining, large-scale deforestation, etc) potentially cause ecocide and could become illegal when the initiative is successful.

The EU has the power to introduce such a law and when at least 1 million EU citizens support the proposal, EU policy-makers will be legally obliged to consider it. Vote online, spread the word, and get involved. Every vote counts. www.endecocide.eu

 

WHY WE NEED IT

  • to act as one law to end different types of environmental destruction
  • to hold decision makers directly liable
  • to preserve and protect biodiversity
  • to protect entire ecosystems, not just individual elements such as soil, air, fauna & flora
  • to trigger the transformation to a green economy
  • to honour our duty to future generations
  • to contribute to a shift in values to give the earth its own rights
