Eradicating ecocide

Tags:

LOBBYING is a legitimate,transparent andpublic exercise in rational persuassion and information provisions has a role in all political decision-making,a process used by all who seek to influence issues of importance.A LOBBYIST'S job is in some respect akin to a court advocate,he or she has an arguement to present and has anat his or her disposal various tools to assist - primar evidence,witnesses,justification - inthe pursuit of exerting influence. LOBBYING HAS NO RULE-BOOK, and nocode of condust.THOSE WHO ARE LOBBIED ARE RARELY TRAINED IN THE ART OF EXERCISING INDEPENDENT and impartial judgement.
CORPORATE LOBBYING DOES NOT WORK FROM THEPREMISE OF CARING FOR THEWELLBEING OFTHE COMMUNITY - so lobbying for eradicating ecocide and holding business and governments to account deserves great courage and belief,devotion to that cause.
Evasion ofenvironmental responsibilty is dictated by financialconsiderations and where conflict between business and environmentalconcrens arise the voices of concern are often drowned by even louder vioce of profit.
WE CANCHANGETHERULESOFTHE game following the next princiles:
1.Ammend all compromise treaties,laws,rukes and regulations
- replace with prohibition of all damaging and destrutive practices and include provisions to enable restoration of damaged territeries to be prioritised over existing practices that are premised on financial penalty alone.
2. COMMUNITY INTERESTS to be placed over private and corporate decisions.
3.Accountability of business practices must be scrutinised by indepndent bodies and mdde public available
4.HOLD all governing odies to account. IF DAMAGING policies are being promoted, call for them to be halted with immeduiate effect
5.HOLD community meetings and ensure proper democratic and true consultation is seen to be done
6.Transition to cleaner solutions must be rapid and effective.
IT is our heads os state that can take the crime of ECOCIDE to the UNITED NATIONS, FOR IT TOBE MADE INTO INTERNATIONAL LAW - but everyone has a role toplay inthenewgame of life.
