The Organic Consumers Association (OCA), IFOAM International Organics, Navdanya, Regeneration International (RI), and Millions Against Monsanto, joined by dozens of global food, farming and environmental justice groups announced today that they will put Monsanto MON (NYSE), a US-based transnational corporation, on mock trial for crimes against nature and humanity, and ecocide, in The Hague, Netherlands, next year on World Food Day, October 16, 2016.
Though this is not a true trial, this mock trial will definitely bring attention to what Monsanto and other companies are doing to our environment. If enough awareness of Monsanto’s wrong doing is brought to light perhaps a criminal court somewhere will decide to pursue this matter further. Monsanto and others have been knowingly harming people and the environment with their products for too long. It is time that they face the consequences for the damage they have done and continue to do.
