Another nail in Monsanto's coffin?
We can only hope.
From the opinion:
Monsanto has engaged in practices that have impinged on the basic human right to a healthy environment, the right to food and the right to health. Additionally, Monsanto’s conduct has a negative impact on the right of scientists to freely conduct indispensable research.
From the article at Sustainable Pulse:
The judges also conclude that despite the development of regulations intended to protect the environment, a gap remains between commitments and the reality of environmental protection. International law should now precisely and clearly assert the protection of the environment and establish the crime of ecocide.
A non binding international tribunal announced its opinion yesterday. Its' most important finding: if there were a crime of ecocide, Monsanto would likely be guilty of it, and should certainly be prosecuted.
