This tribunal will consist of five international judges listening to the testimonies of thirty witnesses and experts from around the world as they tell their stories profiling the nature of Monsanto’s environmental terrorism on humanity and the planet. A website dedicated to this tribunal (monsantotribunal.org) details some of the background and specifics surrounding the goals of this upcoming tribunal:
The aim of the Tribunal is to give a legal opinion on the environmental and health damage caused by the multinational Monsanto. This will add to the international debate to include the crime of Ecocide into international criminal law. It will also give people all over the world a well documented legal file to be used in lawsuits against Monsanto and similar chemical companies.
General purpose of the Tribunal:
To get a ruling- even symbolic – against Monsanto by a bench of real judges, after
veritable proceedings in an international court, and contribute to the establishment of international mechanisms to bring justice to victims of multinationals.
