Monsanto Tribunal in the Hague

Monsanto Tribunal in the Hague

The People’s Assembly will be a gathering of movements, seed savers, seed defenders, farmers and growers and civilians to address the crimes against nature and against humanity perpetrated by chemical and biotechnology corporations.

While looking at how WTO and Free trade policies introduced patents on seed and promoted the GMO invasion, we will also look at the new free trade agreements like TTIP and TPP. Through the experience of ecocide and genocide of the last century, we will also chart the road to our future based on Seed Freedom and Food Freedom, agroecology and farmers rights, our commons and economies of sharing, rights of nature and earth democracy.

The Monsanto Tribunal and People’s Assembly will take place from 14th – 16th October 2016. The draft agenda for the People’s Assembly includes the following issues:

A Century of Ecocide and Genocide

  • Owning Life and Poisoning Life
  • Attack on Farmers and Farming
  • Attack on science and scientists
  • Attack on Food Freedom and Democracy

Corporate Control and New Threats
