People are fed-up. And angry. We simply no longer accept that corporations have the right to ride roughshod over the environment or destroy the health of its inhabitants.

No longer will we stand by and watch as beauty and the balance of nature is laid to waste.
Monsanto, in particular, is known as one of the most destructive corporations of all times.

During the COP21 event in Paris, the alliance announced that Monsanto will be put on trial in The Hague, Netherlands for “crimes against nature and humanity” come autumn 2016.
