Please Support: The Permanent People’s Tribunal (PPT) Session on Agrochemical TNCs

The International Women’s Alliance (IWA) supports the Pesticide Action Network’s (PAN) Permanent People’s Tribunal on agrochemical transnational corporations. Please express your solidarity to this endeavor to hold TNCs accountable for their crimes against the people. PAN – Asia Pacific is a member of our Asian Rural Women’s Coalition (ARWC).

The following is the text of PAN’s petition:

Dear friends,
On December 3 to 6, a Permanent People’s Tribunal will convene to indict Agrochemical Transnationals for gross violations of human rights. An international opinion tribunal, the PPT will gather farmers, agricultural workers, Indigenous Peoples, fisherfolk, women, children, scientists, consumers, and activists from all over the world to bear witness to the crimes of the six largest agrochemical TNCs. Throughout the years, these TNCs have caused the death and illnesses of innocents, irreversible environmental damage, willful destruction of livelihoods, and increasing loss of people’s control over food and agriculture. The PPT is a valiant endeavour to stop the impunity with which agrochemical TNCs commit crimes against the people, and to create an effective system of corporate accountability.

The PPT on Agrochemical TNCs is organised by Pesticide Action Network International, a global network of more than 600 organisations in over 90 countries which has been working to eliminate the use of pesticides and other hazardous technologies. Please read our petition to learn more about the cases to be brought against agrochemical TNCs, and sign-on to show support for this landmark quest for justice.

In solidarity,

Pesticide Action Network Asia and the Pacific
