Video Release – UN Binding Treaty (7/8): “Rights of Affected Communities”

Global Campaign

 

Demand #6: Rights of Affected Communities – Kea Seipato from the Southern African Campaign to Dismantle the Power of Multinationals

 

 

Impunity prevails with Transnational corporations (TNCs) that systematically violate human rights.

 

We need an international treaty to ensure that communities affected by TNC crimes have access to justice.

 

In the Global Campaign to Reclaim Peoples Sovereignty, Dismantle Corporate Power and Stop Impunity we have always stressed the importance of focusing on holding transnational corporations accountable for human rights violations.

 

Kea Seipato from the Southern African Campaign to Dismantle the Power of Multinationals explains why it´s important to protect “The Right to say No” of communities affected by TNCs operations. And how this would be an effective way to stop corporate abuses.

Social organisations and movements, communities affected by the operations of TNCs and others fighting for social and environmental justice around the world, will march to Geneva in October 2019 (12th to 19th)

 

This will be the fifth time we mobilise for the establishment of a United Nations (UN) treaty that imposes on states and corporations international obligations to guarantee that affected communities, groups and individuals whose human rights have been violated by transnational corporations have access to justice, reparation and remedy.
