On June 22, 2021, French Member of European Parliament Marie Toussaint introduced an amendment encouraging the EU and the member states to promote the recognition of ecocide as an international crime under the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC), which includes an international definition of ecocide. I am pleased to support the definition of ecocide as an international crime as proposed by the Panel & the Stop Ecocide Foundation. As a Canadian Member of Parliament, alongside MP Paul Manly, Nanaimo-Ladysmith, I am a member of The International Alliance of Parliamentarians for the recognition of ecocide.
