Currently, it’s impossible under law to bring criminal charges against a company like multinational agricultural and chemical giant Monsanto or against its management for its crimes against humanity and ecocide. The Monsanto Tribunal, October 15-16, in The Hague will invoke international law to get a ruling.

The purpose of the Monsanto Tribunal is to get a ruling—even a symbolic one—against Monsanto by a bench of real judges, after verifiable proceedings in an international court, and to contribute to the establishment of international mechanisms to bring justice to victims of multinational corporations.
