Binding Treaty Demand #6: the Rights of Affected Communities
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.
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.
In the Global Campaign to Reclaim Peoples Sovereignty, Dismantle Corporate Power and Stop Impunity we have always stressed the importance of focussing on holding transnational corporations accountable for human rights violations.
