Pesticide Industry on Trial

A message from Pesticide Action Network of North America (PANNA):

“Known as the ‘Big 6’, Monsanto, Dow, BASF, Bayer, Syngenta and DuPont control 74% of the global pesticide market and 49% of the global seed market, making the pesticide/agricultural biotechnology industry one of the most consolidated and powerful sectors in the world. And they know it.

The pesticide industry has a long history of getting away with human rights abuses in part because there is no single set of laws to which they are accountable as global corporations. But basic human rights to life, livelihood and health are agreed upon by all peoples – these are the conditions or our humanity and of a fair society.

The Permanent People’s Tribunal, held in Bangalore, India, from December 3 – 6, will bring these corporations to trial for their many human rights violations. We the people must hold corporations to account, add your name to this global call for justice.”
