2019 will be a decisive year for the Binding Treaty on Transnational Corporations and Human Rights.

We call to mobilise worldwide on 12th October to denounce Corporate impunity, on the occasion of the Week of Peoples Mobilisation in Geneva.

The 5th Session of the Open-ended Intergovernmental Working Group (OEIGWG) in Geneva will take place from October 14 to 18. The Global Campaign to Reclaim Peoples Sovereignty, Dismantle Corporate Power and Stop Impunity will be there again, as every year since 2014, to continue to pressure governments and prevent them from derailing the process.

In that context:

  • We join the call of the European Campaign “Rights for people, rules for corporations – Stop ISDS” that will mobilize between October 11 and 18 in Europe denouncing corporate power.
  • We convene the Week of Peoples Mobilisation in Geneva (Switzerland) from 12 to 19 October.
  • We call to mobilise in protest against corporate power on October 12 across the planet and to pressure governments to advance the Binding Treaty. It is an important day that reminds the “discovery” of America initiating a colonial process that has a continuity with the current economic policies imposed by the most powerful countries to the Global South.

Who we are

The Global Campaign to Reclaim Peoples Sovereignty, Dismantle Corporate Power and Stop Impunity (Global Campaign) is a network of over 250 social movements, civil society organisations (CSOs), trade unions and communities affected by the activities of TNCs. These groups resist land grabs, extractive mining, exploitative wages and environmental destruction caused by TNCs globally but particularly in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America. The Global Campaign is a peoples global structural response to unaccountable corporate power. It provides facilitation for dialogue, strategizing, exchanging information and experiences and acts as a space to make resistance visible and deepen solidarity and support for struggles against TNCs.
