Not everyone can travel to The Hague to participate in the People’s Assembly or watch the two days of testimony at the formal tribunal. That’s why we’re calling for everyone to join in the Global World Food Day March Against Monsanto.
The more people who take to the streets on World Food Day to help mark the end of the formal Monsanto Tribunal, the more attention we will attract—from governments and the media—to Monsanto’s crimes against nature and humanity—and to our vision for the future.
On October 15 – 16, in The Hague, Netherlands, five international judges will hear testimony from 29 witnesses representing five continents. On October 14, prior to the start of the formal Tribunal, activists, media, witnesses and NGOs from all over the world will convene for a People’s Assembly.
This citizen’s tribunal represents our best opportunity to expose Monsanto’s crimes to the entire world. All we need are more citizens.
The more people who endorse the Tribunal, spread the word about it, help fund it, organize World Food Day protests—and of course, attend in person—the more impact this citizens’ initiative will have on future legal proceedings against Monsanto and other agribusiness giants.
It is up to civil society organizations and individual citizens of the world to fund the People’s Assembly and the Monsanto Tribunal. The Organic Consumers Association and Millions Against Monsanto have already donated, and have pledged to raise more money to support this global civil society initiative.
