ECOCIDE is the serious loss, damage or destruction of ecosystems, and includes climate and cultural damage.
StopEcocide believes ECOCIDE should be recognised as an atrocity crime at the International Criminal Court in The Hague – alongside Genocide, War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity.
A SIMPLE LEGAL PROCESS
Any member state, however small, can propose an amendment to the International Criminal Court’s governing document, the Rome Statute. Once tabled, it cannot be vetoed.
When two thirds of ICC members sign up to it, it becomes law.
A POWERFUL WAY TO CHANGE INDUSTRY DIRECTION
A criminal law prevents investors from backing ecocidal practices, and insurers from underwriting them. Persons of superior responsibility – CEOs and government ministers – become individually criminally responsible for ecocide which they recklessly cause or contribute to (eg by engaging in ecocidal practices or issuing permits for them).
HOW IS IT POSSIBLE?
Those with the greatest incentive – small island nations at the frontline of climate breakdown
– already have the power to propose this amendment. All they require is:
By becoming an Earth Protector, you’re supporting both these things.
Become an Earth Protector now.
