Love the Earth | Protect the Earth | Make Ecocide a Crime Now! | Extinction Rebellion


[email protected] Right now law is upside down. Ecosystems are being destroyed by
dangerous industrial activity which is legal. Those standing up to protect their communities are criminalized but we can realign law helping make ecocide an international crime and protecting those protectors law is like a pyramid Soft law like the Paris agreement
is unenforceable, it cannot protect us. Civil law, where we find most
environmental regulation, also does not protect us. Suing companies is expensive and difficult. Corporations simply budget
for it and continue to pollute. Only criminal law can stop the harm. 124 states are parties to the Rome Statute, the governing document for international criminal law. Any signatory head of state
can propose an amendment. when two thirds of states sign up it becomes law. There is no veto, no time limit and all state parties, however small, have an equal vote. Small, climate vulnerable states therefore have a unique incentive to put forward this amendment. this is the legal fast lane but it costs money those small states don’t have but between us we do. by signing up online to a legal document we become trustees of the earth while gifting funds to finance those very same small states and because this document
is legally valid across the globe wherever activists are arrested they can present it in court they can speak out about the ecocide they are facing and why they choose to stand up to it it’s simple and powerful a legal Rebel Alliance of earth protectors coming together to realign law with a higher moral code protecting the earth protecting our communities protecting the protectors
