4th session of negotiations for a legally binding treaty ends

Conclusions and recommendations approved by the participants with the exception of the European Union alone.

The European Union disengaged with this process despite the pressure of civil society and the constructive engagement of all countries in all other regions of the world, but we know that with or without the EU we are going to have the 5th session,” Lucia Ortiz, Economic Justice Program Coordinator at Friends of the Earth International told Real World Radio on Friday 19 October 2018.

“People are united, people have power and we have been advancing a lot already in this process. It’s like we are unstoppable now and we are going to keep fighting until we have the binding treaty and we have more power to dismantle corporate power!”
