Polly Higgins, author of Eradicating Ecocide, was interviewed by Lucy Siegle of The Observer, resulting in a wonderful piece in last Sunday’s Observer Magazine which dubs her “the innovator”. Polly, described here as a law reformer, says ‘I want everybody to become a barrack-room lawyer on behalf of the planet.’ She hopes that the book will inspire people to do just that. As Siegle put it, the book ‘outlines the steps you can take towards becoming an Erin Brockovich in your own right.’ Polly tells her she ‘expects us to take the law into our own hands and help to give the planet a legal voice.’
