PAN Europe supports the Monsanto Tribunal
The Monsanto Tribunal is an international civil society initiative to hold Monsanto accountable for human rights violations, for crimes against humanity, and for ecocide. Eminent judges heard testimonies from victims, and will deliver an advisory opinion following procedures of the International Court of Justice.
A distinct and parallel event, the People’s Assembly, has the opportunity for social movements to rally and plan for the future we want. The Tribunal and People’s Assembly took place between 14 and 16 October 2016 in The Hague, Netherlands.
The Monsanto Tribunal has been livestreamed so that people everywhere in the world could watch and listen to the Judges, the lawyers and the witnesses. The background information and the appeal can be found on the following website http://www.monsanto-tribunal.org/.
