As concerned citizens of a planet in delicate balance, we are calling on the leaders of the 123 parties of the Rome Statute to make Ecocide the 5th International Crime Against Peace. Ecocide is the extensive damage to, destruction of or loss of ecosystems, whether by human agency or by other causes, to such an extent that peaceful enjoyment by the inhabitants of that ecosystem has been or will be severely diminished. We are launching this petition because we feel that we must criminalize actions that threaten the wellbeing of our planet by creating a legally binding method of holding perpetrators of Ecocide accountable. We hope you'll join us in signing and sharing our petition asking world leaders to take action NOW: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/890/838/515/protect-planet-earth-ask-world-leaders-to-pass-international-ecocide-law/ We are filled with gratitude to be rising up with women around the world who are are ready to activate our collective intelligence toward a brighter future! The 21st century is calling us to greatness and nothing less will do.
