Ecocide crime: a crime of our time

It is hard to accept that just 4 months after this video was shot, the intelligent, engaging and talented voice of Polly Higgins would sadly fall silent forever. But Polly has left behind a strong and clear message that will continue to guide so many of us involved in the eco-movements championed by her knowledge and unstinting support. Her career began as a barrister in London, before selecting just one client, the Earth. Over the past decade, she had championed Ecocide law, a law devised soley to protect the Earth, with her most recent focus having been on climate ecocide and examining the evidence to establish whether such a crime exists.
