AEFJN takes part in the alliance of over 150 European organisations, trade unions and social movements, campaigning in favour of corporate accountability rules for companies, and against Investor to State Dispute Settlement, a parallel, one sided and unfair justice system for corporations.
In only a week, more than 270.000 people have addressed to the President of the European Commission, the presidency of the EU Council and other EU representatives to alert them on the threats of ISDS, stating that undermines democracy, human rights, the rule of law, environmental protections, health, gender equality, public services as well as consumer and labour rights.
We believe that the current system giving privileges to corporations must be abolished to stop corporate impunity and put people and the planet first.
Instead of these VIP rights for corporations, we need a legally binding UN treaty on Transnational Corporations and Human Rights, as well as new EU and national legislation to keep corporations accountable, and to ensure access to justice for people and communities affected by corporate abuse.
We call you to join the movement to put an end to this privileged and unjust arbitral courts in hands of transnational corporations. You can sign the petition here :
