Your support for the law of Ecocide is important. It shows to world leaders that the global citizens of the world mandate them to make this an international crime. You can either sign Wish20 by submitting your details in the box to the left which will automatically be mapped on the Wish20 Map, or alternatively you can map yourself directly via the Wish20 Map. If you are a European Citizen, please sign the European Citizens’ Initiative to make Ecocide a crime in the EU.
The Wish20 Map is a visual representation of where our supporters are around the world and what their wishes for 2020 are. If you are from Europe please also sign the European Citizen’s Initiative to End Ecocide.

A poem by Martin Powell.
We’re living in hard times under the sun
The laws that protect us are coming undone
We’ve poisoned our land and we’ve blackened our soil
Paved the way for disaster with tarmac and oil
We can no longer live without thought to our fate
And it’s time to act now before it’s too late
So wish plenty for WISH20, make them with care
Wrap them in dreams, send them into the air
Because it’s clear in our atmosphere, it’s time to repair
George Orwell once said, “In times of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act”. I say, in times of environmental defeat, a crime against peace is an evolutionary pact.
