International tribunal finds Monsanto guilty of crimes against humanity – HealthyTipsAdvice

Is Monsanto, the corporate scourge of the Earth, finally going to pay for its crimes? If one group gets their way, yes.



If the International Monsanto Tribunal has any say in the matter, the answer to that question appears to be an emphatic “Yes.” 



The tribunal, based in Hague, Netherlands, describes itself as “an international civil society initiative to hold Monsanto accountable for human rights violations, for crimes against humanity, and for ecocide.”


And their recently returned verdict? Guilty, on all three counts.


The tribunal stated that the company’s seed empire adversely affects the world’s access to food, and that by manufacturing and distributing substances such as PCBs(polychlorinated biphenyls) and glyphosate, Monsanto has infringed on our right to high standards of health.” 

“Additionally, the tribunal found that Monsanto perverts scientific freedom by practicing forms of intimidation, pressuring governments, and discrediting legitimate scientific research that supports public health and environmental protection.”

While the ruling from the International Monsanto Tribunal is not legally binding, there is hope that their verdict will inspire other governments and agencies to get on board. 

The fact that an international body has found Monsanto guilty of crimes against humanity, violations of human rights and for ecocide is a tremendous step forward towards the goal of ending the corporation’s reign of terror. 

Whether or not further action will be taken remains to be seen, but it seems that the global condemnation of Monsanto is well underway.
