Nature reclaims local stone quarries, Westhope, Herefordshire. Photos by me.

Loca ~ place (latin). Cede ~ to yield, give up.

To locacede ~ to withdraw from a place, to directly decolonise humans from an ecological system.

To withdraw oneself or a dominant human community voluntarily from a floloca, thereby allowing non-human processes to reclaim. To do so is based on the best information possible and by NO force or coercion, instead with fluministic love. It is a symbioethic.

This is intended to replace the language of decolonization in ‘environmental’ ethics, thereby leaving that to remain clearly in the domain of colonialism with respect to human political and cultural ’empire.’
