One million voices for the law of ecocide
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
