Khulumani joins the Movement Calling for Binding Obligations on Transnational Corporations

A critical issue on the agenda of the current session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (10 – 27 June 2014) is the Call for a binding treaty on corporate human right violations.

The long silence on the need for binding obligations on Transnational Corporations (TNCs) was shattered in September 2013, when 85 states led by Ecuador placed a resolution on the agenda of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC). This resolution has been supported by over 500 civil society networks in a Campaign entitled Stop Corporate Crimes and Impunity.

Now the department of justice finally wants to spend it, but who will actually benefit?
