Earth Day: no to environmental crimes

Today, 22nd of April 2013 the 43rd Earth Day, which involves 175 countries, has been celebrated.

Earth Day

Every day numerous environmental crimes are committed . These crimes are punished by legal orders of many countries all over the world. The idea of the Earth Day took shape in 1969 following the environmental disaster caused by the oil spill from the well of a Union Oil near the coast of Santa Barbara, California. After this, senator Nelson decided it was time to make public opinion and political world aware of  environmental issues. 

So on the 2nd of April 1970, 20 million American citizens demonstrated in defense of the Earth.  First Earth Day was made by The CBS News who wrote an article about this entitled Earth Day: a matter of survival”. To guarantee our survival and that of future generations we have to respect the environment in which we live because environmental crimes are crimes against humanity.
