Meeting convened by the Global Campaign to Reclaim Peoples Sovereignty, Dismantle Corporate Power and Stop Impunity, to exchange on the strategies and struggles on corporate power as well as on the process towards the UN Binding Treaty on Transnational Corporations and Human Rights.
The Global Campaign to Reclaim Peoples Sovereignty, Dismantle Corporate Power and Stop Impunity is a network of over 200 social movements, networks, organisations and affected communities resisting the land grabs, extractive mining, exploitative wages and environmental destruction of transnational corporations (TNCs) in different global regions particularly in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The Campaign is a peoples global structural response to unaccountable corporate power which provides facilitation for dialogue, exchanging information and experiences, acting as a space for visibility of resistance and deepening of solidarity and support for struggles against TNCs. The Campaign is strengthening its work through:
- Mobilisation and Solidarity work with resistance of affected communities (e.g. Marikana, Amadiba-South Africa, UDAPT-Ecuador, Mariana-Brazil, ATM-Mining Campaign-Philippines).
- Concretising the International Peoples Treaty in different dimensions such as: food sovereignty, agribusiness, finance, health, labour and migrant rights, extractive industries, women struggles, privatization of democracy and alternatives.
- Campaigning for the Binding Treaty on TNCs at the UN and developing Campaign Proposals for the Intergovernmental Working Group mandated to develop the UN Treaty (OEIGWG).
