Mission LifeForce's Jojo Mehta has been introducing new audiences to the concept of "aligning the force of law with the force of life" - the Earth Protectors' mission to make ecocide a crime. Festival crowds in the Treehouse and Pagoda venues at Greenbelt Festival listened attentively, while the stunning Imaginarium venue at Shambala was packed to the tent-poles... we are still catching up with entering all the resulting sign-ups into our system! Looking forward to welcoming the new trustees very soon (and thank you J Sargent for Greenbelt pics).
