PAN Europe supports the Monsanto Tribunal

The Monsanto Tribunal is an international civil society initiative to hold Monsanto accountable for human rights violations, for crimes against humanity, and for ecocide. Eminent judges will hear testimonies from victims, and deliver an advisory opinion following procedures of the International Court of Justice. A parallel People's Assembly provides the opportunity for social movements to rally and plan for the future we want. The Tribunal and People's Assembly will take place between 14 and 16 October 2016 in The Hague, Netherlands. The background information and the appeal can be found on the following website, http://www.monsanto-tribunal.org/

Since the tribunal needs additional funding, we ask for you financial support, http://www.monsanto-tribunal.org/why-a-tribunal/donate/

The EU is about to re-authorise Glyphosate for another 10 years despite significant evidence of its danger. How could this be?
