Upcoming Event: MONSANTO On TRIAL
Tue 11 October 2016 at 18:00 – 21:00
This October, seed and pesticide corporation Monsanto is facing an international court in The Hague. While this is just a symbolic people’s court, the witnesses and judges are real. They have been called because they have suffered human rights abuses, threats to their communities and destruction of their environment. Come and hear from one of these witnesses, Farida Akhter, who is touring around the UK before travelling to the Hague for the tribunal.
Global Justice Now has commissioned photo journalist Jordi Cirera create a photo exhibition by visiting some of these witnesses in India and Bangladesh. His photos tell the stories of farmers who are fighting Monsanto to work out an alternative model of farming.
–Farida Ahkter, a Bangladeshi seed sovereignty campaigner and founder of biggest collection of community seed banks in the world.
–Nick Dearden, Director of Global Justice Now
