A Landmark Victory for Justice: Biowatch’s Battle with the South African State and Monsanto
Published by Biowatch South Africa, this is a book about access to information, the right to know, and action in the public’s interest – a must-read for anyone campaigning for environmental or social justice.
The book tells the inside story of how a reasonable request for access to GMO permit applications catapulted the environmental watch-dog into almost a decade of litigation against the South African state and monolithic Monsanto – a battle finally won in the Constitutional Court.
A Landmark Victory for Justice – an inspiration to civil society.
Written by Rachel Wynberg and David Fig, Biowatch founder trustees, the book provides an insider’s perspective on the organisational toll and lessons learnt. This “inside story” serves as an inspiration to civil society and a warning to those pursuing narrow profit motives at the expense of the environment.
