Rights for People, Rules for Corporations
Short video highlighting the role of the UK both in producing global emissions and as a base of corporate power - but also a base for solidarity campaigning, which a global Treaty on Transnationals and Human Rights can help to strengthen.
The public is well aware by now that business-as-usual is not an option if we are to avert ecological breakdown and move to a fairer, safer and more peaceful way of co-existing on the planet.
Business-as-usual means maintaining trade rules and treaties that give corporations enormous power to endlessly extract natural resources. Business-as-usual means sacrificing communities and ecosystems in those places to feed rampant consumerism for the profit of a powerful minority.
We reject business-as-usual. We want a #BindingTreaty on Transnational Corporations and Human Rights and we are building solidarity across countries and movements to demand Rights for People, Rules for Corporations.
