Proposal on the crime of Ecocide presented to french President

PRESIDENT HOLLANDE RECEIVES A DRAFT OF UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMANITY RIGHTS

The text is accompanied by another document presenting various alternatives. Some can be accepted by the States within the framework of the United Nations; others, like that the one of End Ecocide one Earth, within more specific and independent frameworks into the UN system, such as the International Criminal Court, but which all form part of the international system of prevention and management of the crises. These alternatives thus take part in a creative Utopia which proposes means in conformity with  the settings ahead with democratic, fair, ecological and peaceful means.

THE REPORT IS IN PREAMBLE OF COP21 AND UN-70 TH ASSEMBLY GENERAL The report submitted to the President of the Republic contains the inventory of existing texts relating to the declaration, the Global and explanatory section by section of the statement, then the possible procedures for the adoption of this text, and the state of many citizen initiatives already underway as part of the preparations for the COP 21. Following the publication of this report, a broad consultation will be conducted and a side event on the subject will be held during the COP21.

The team working with Corinne Lepage : Ahmed ALAMI, Marie-Odile BERTELLA-GEOFFROY , Valérie CABANES, Francois DAMERVAL, Hubert DELZANGLES, Emilie GAILLARD, Christian HUGLO, Nicolas IMBERT, Adam KONIUSZEWSKI, Jean-Marc LAVIEILLE, Catherine LE BRIS, Bettina LAVILLE and Mathieu WEMERE.
“The President chooses diplomatic channels he wishes to take the wear. This text will not enter into negotiations to Cop 21, which are already quite complicated. But the Cop 21 is a great opportunity, with the presence in France of policymakers worldwide. This process is intended to result in adoption of the text by the current UN General Assembly, 2016. As this is a statement, not a binding text, it will be easier to pass. On a very long term, however, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights could enable humanity to enact binding texts for States.” Said Corinne Lepage to Metronews journal.
