2020 Peoples Mobilisation #BindingTreaty

Global Campaign

 

2020 WILL BE A DECISIVE YEAR FOR THE BINDING TREATY ON TRANSNATIONAL CORPORATIONS AND HUMAN RIGHTS!

BE THERE TO RECLAIM PEOPLES RIGHTS OVER CORPORATE PROFITS AND IMPUNITY

Who we are

The Global Campaign to Reclaim Peoples Sovereignty, Dismantle Corporate Power and Stop Impunity (Global Campaign) is a network of over 250 social movements, civil society organisations (CSOs), trade unions and communities affected by the activities of TNCs. These groups resist land grabs, extractive mining, exploitative wages and environmental destruction caused by TNCs globally but particularly in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America. The Global Campaign is a peoples global structural response to unaccountable corporate power. It provides facilitation for dialogue, strategizing, exchanging information and experiences and acts as a space to make resistance visible and deepen solidarity and support for struggles against TNCs. At the same time the Global Campaign:

 

  • Proposes an International Peoples Treaty which provides a political framework to support the local, national and international movements and communities in their resistances and practices of alternatives to corporate power and the TNC model of the economy.

 

 

In August 2020, the OEIGWG Presidency published  the 2nd Revised Draft of the UN Binding Treaty. The Global Campaign published a first Statement on the 2nd Revised Draft.

Our 2020 Peoples Mobilisation #BindingTreaty coincides with the 6th Session of the Open-ended Intergovernmental Working Group mandated to develop a UN Binding Treaty on Transnational Corporations and other business enterprises with respect to Human Rights (OEIGWG). As every year since the approval of the UN Human Rights Council historical Resolution 26/9 (2014), we are back in order to continue pressuring governments to keep the process of building the Binding Treaty and moving forward.

 

 

What are we planning?

  • All October and November our members and allies are organising virtual activities linked to the struggle against corporate impunity and for the UN Binding Treaty (see below our political calendar).
  • At the UN level we will develop presential and virtual focussed advocacy with governments on the UN Binding Treaty.
