Monsanto will face trial for crimes against humanity

Monsanto is an agriculture company that is well known for creating pesticides such as Roundup. These pesticides are bad for the environment and believed to be bad for health as well.

As written in Scitable, a publication from Nature Education:

After countless studies, pesticides have been linked to cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease, ADHD, and even birth defects. Pesticides also have the potential to harm the nervous system, the reproductive system, and the endocrine system. Pesticides can even be very harmful to fetuses because the chemicals can pass from the mother during pregnancy or if a woman nurses her child. Although one piece of fruit with pesticides won’t kill you, if they build up in your body, they can be potentially detrimental to your health and should be avoided as much as possible.

Because of the dangers of their pesticides, Monsanto will face trial for crimes against humanity.

A group of food and environment justice organizations including Millions Against Monsanto, Regeneration International, IFOAM International Organics, Navdanya and more are suing Monsanto.

As stated on the Ecologist article:

“Monsanto promotes an agroindustrial model that contributes at least one third of global anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions”, stated the coalition of Organic Consumers Association (OCA), IFOAM International Organics, Navdanya, Regeneration International (RI), and Millions Against Monsanto, and others.

“It is also largely responsible for the depletion of soil and water resources, species extinction and declining biodiversity, and the displacement of millions of small farmers worldwide. This is a model that threatens peoples’ food sovereignty by patenting seeds and privatizing life …

“The Tribunal will rely on the ‘Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights’ adopted at the UN in 2011. It will also assess potential criminal liability on the basis of the Rome Statue that created the International Criminal Court in The Hague in 2002, and it will consider whether a reform of international criminal law is warranted to include crimes against the environment, or ecocide, as a prosecutable criminal offense, so that natural persons could incur criminal liability.”

Ronnie Cummins, Director of the Organic Consumers Association said, “The time is long overdue for a global citizens’ tribunal to put Monsanto on trial for crimes against humanity and the environment. They are nothing more than literal poison for the public.”
