Dies ist eine Online-Petition of the European Parliament.


The Petitioner asks the EU to initiate, at the earliest possible occasion, the process to add gross acts of intended environmental destruction or negligence, damaging the planet, to the Rome Statute under the Article 7 “Crimes Against Humanity”. The Petitioner is of the view that persons in a position of power or influence should be held responsible for their action undermining science, research or activities intended to reduce industrial impact. In addition, he asks for an addendum to the Rome statute, so as to obtain that persons can be held accountable for this sort of crime – as it is of a global nature -, even if their country is not a signatory state.
