Mon$anto To Be Put On Trial For Crimes Against Nature And Humanity

Monsanto is to be placed on trial for “crimes against nature and humanity, and ecocide, in The Hague, Netherlands, next year on World Food Day, October 16, 2016.”

During the Climate Conference in Paris, France last week, several groups (Organic Consumers Association, IFOAM, Navdanya, Regeneration International) declared via a press release that the court, in The Hague, Netherlands, will use the UN’s ‘Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights’ developed in 2011 to assess damages for Monsanto’s acts against human life and the environment.

The court will also rely on the Rome Statute that created the International Criminal Court in The Hague in 2002, and it will consider whether to reform international criminal law to include crimes against the environment, or ecocide, as a prosecutable criminal offense. This International Criminal Court, established in 2002 in The Hague, has determined that prosecuting ecocide as a criminal offense is the only way to guarantee the rights of humans to a healthy environment and the right of nature to be protected.

More in this press release from Organic Consumers Association (OCA), IFOAM International Organics, Navdanya, Regeneration International (RI), and Millions Against Monsanto, along with dozens of global food, farming, and environmental justice groups.

I'm not sure this is a real trial or a real court, but I'm sure the impartial Organic Consumers Association will make sure that monsanto will get a fair trial for crimes against nature.

C'mon Thrash, respect ya, but ugh!

From Forbes:

“Monsanto on trial for crimes against nature and humanity,” a headline for The Ecologist declared on Sunday. Other fringe websites reported similar news of the so-called International Monsanto Tribune set to take place in the Hague, the seat of Dutch government, in October of next year. Thus far, no mainstream media has reported on the plan, because it’s not a real trial.

Nevertheless, the group organizing the tribunal is doing its best to paint the event as a legitimate trial. The tribunal, the group’s website explains, will rely on “the ‘Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights’ adopted at the UN in 2011,” and “assess potential criminal liability on the basis of the Rome Statue (sic) that created the International Criminal Court in The Hague in 2002.”

While the verbiage sounds official, this tribunal is not governed by the United Nations nor the International Criminal Court, an international treaty-based court not affiliated with the UN. Instead, the group is using the guidelines of both for their trial, in a seeming attempt to lend authenticity to a glorified meeting of the who’s who of anti-biotech science deniers, during which they will undoubtedly find their absent defendant guilty.

@JU & TDaze - You guys are correct that this is not "official" -- hence the ridicule that this is meaningless.
Au contraire. That is exactly the point.

The fact that there is no official international inquiry means that "We the people" must seek justice via a "Tribunal" or People's Court.

In all likelihood Mon$anto will not even attempt to defend itself.

So if you read the PR, the whole objective is to bear witness and collect testimony.

You & I are the jury. You can decide for yourself based on the evidence presented.

In the end, justice will prevail... either in the courts or the streets. It's Mon$anto's choice at this point.
