(Before It's News)

gmo-feature-990x556An international tribunal is being staged in front of The Hague this weekend to highlight the human rights violations and ecological devastation wreaked by the GMO and chemical giant around the world, as well as to draw attention to the failure of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to bring such corporate criminals to justice.

The three-day “moral trial,” arranged by an international coalition of rights and environmental groups, begins Friday.

People’s assemblies at the Hague and around the globe will draw attention to the unprecedented trial.

“This tribunal might not be legally binding, but it will highlight the urgent need for similar legal mechanisms to hold corporations accountable for the damage they cause in the pursuit of profit,” said Global Justice Now food campaigner Heidi Chow in a statement.

The tribunal comes as Monsanto comes closer to merging with chemical giant Bayer, to form the largest GMO and pesticide company in the world.
