“End Ecocide in Europe is a grass-roots initiative aimed at protecting ecosystems on which we all depend for life.  To achieve that, severe cases of environmental destruction should be recognised as crime for which those responsible can be held accountable.  This crime has a name: Ecocide.

“Ecocide is defined as the “extensive damage to, destruction of or loss of ecosystems of a given territory“.  We demand direct criminal liability for those responsible for ecocide, both individuals (i. e. decision-makers in politics and business) and companies.  The proposed Ecocide Directive would apply to five cases: Ecocide committed on EU territory, or by companies registered in the EU, or by EU citizens, as well as the import of any goods or services resulting from activities causing ecocide in the EU and the financing of ecocide by EU banks or financial institutions.”

Wonderful!
