Eradicating Ecocide

What is Ecocide? A jury will decide tomorrow whether two CEO’s have committed the crime of Ecocide.

Ecocide is the crime that protects the Earth’s right to life; it is a crime to destroy the Earth – a crime against humanity, nature and future generations, a crime against peace.
