This Saturday, April 1, 2012, will see a world-first event, bringing a corporate CEO face to face with the victims of their crimes against the Earth through restorative justice. The two fictional CEOs, Robin Bannerman and John Tench, who were found guilty of committing ecocide last year in the UK Supreme Court will be sentenced, in a process involving top experts, including Lawrence Kershen QC, chair of the Restorative Justice Council.
This is a trial run for a new offense of ecocide (much like genocide, but against the Earth and its resources) ahead of trying to get the UN to adopt the offense internationally. You can watch this event free online, Saturday April 1 at 10:30 a.m. U.K. time. More information here.
