Monsanto faces tribunal, and possible ‘ecocide’ charge
About the author: 

Monsanto faces tribunal, and possible ‘ecocide’ charge image

Monsanto, the chemicals conglomerate whose pesticides have been linked to a range of neurological and developmental diseases, could face charges of ‘ecocide’ if an international tribunal finds against it.

The International Monsanto Tribunal, which will be held next October in The Hague, will review allegations that Monsanto’s products have caused illness and even death. If the tribunal finds against Monsanto, it will consider whether the company is in breach of international criminal law, and whether existing laws should encompass crimes of ‘ecocide’ that could result in the prosecution of individual and legal entities, such as companies.

Monsanto’s products include PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls), pollutants that affect human fertility, and dioxin-containing compounds that have been associated with birth defects and cancer. Its main product is RoundUp pesticide.

The tribunal will hear charges that Monsanto is able to ignore health concerns “through a strategy of systemic concealment; by lobbying regulatory agencies and governments, by resorting to lying and corruption, by financing fraudulent scientific studies, by pressuring independent scientists, and by manipulating the press and media.”

In order to go ahead, the tribunal needs to raise funding, which it is attempting to do through Crowd Funding. To find out more, go to: www.monsanto-tribunal.org/home/why-a-tribunal
