Environmental destruction must become a crime. A crime for which individuals and companies can be held responsible. That crime has a name: Ecocide.
Ecocide is not something that happens rarely nowadays. It happens on a daily basis: Deepwater Horizon, Killing of bee colonies in Europe and North America, Fracking of Shale gas, Belo Monte, Fukushima, Chernobyl, Heavy Metal deposits for colouring textiles in Bangladesh and India, destroying national parks to mine new materials all over Africa, mono culture agroindustry using poisons worldwide, The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, two gender fish due to BPA intoxination in the UK, .... you name it....
THIS HAS TO STOP!
But there are already a lot of people and organisations fighting against these cases.
HOW DO WE DIFFER?
Well first we don't want to fight the Symptoms - We want to change the System!
HERE IS OUR UNIQUE APPROACH
We want Ecocide to become a crime for which companies AND individuals can be held responsible according to criminal law and the principle of superior responsibility (similar to the chain of command principle in military service). But it's not only about people and companies it is also about funding. Any company that funds an activity that causes ecocide will be held liable.
THIS WAY WE CHANGE THE SYSTEM!
Economy goes where the money is.
Now to get the economy to go green we need to force the money to go to sustainable markets.
And by holding the decision makers personally liable we force them to switch their funding to green projects!
Where there is no money, there is no more economy.
