Sign petition to demand EU president Juncker to support UN treaty on businesses and human rights

From 24th of October the Human Rights Council will discuss for the second time the historic treaty that could hold transnational corporations and other business enterprises to account for corporate abuses under international human rights law. The UN treaty could protect people from human rights abuses by corporations and bring corporate actors to justice.

Unfortunately the European Union and its Member States aren’t so keen and have so far been boycotting the negotiations.

Help bring justice to victims of corporate abuse, and uphold the rights of ordinary people. Tell the European Commission that we need a binding treaty on business and human rights!
