Support the statement against the corporate capture of Rio+20

A number of international civil society organizations and social movements have joined together to issue a statement against what they call the “corporate capture” of Rio+20: the zero draft of the conference declaration highlights the role of business as promoter of the so-called “green economy”, while failing to hold business accountable for its role in creating the financial, climate, food and other crises. Instead of discussing measures that serve the public interest, the UN and its members merely formulate proposals that benefit certain companies and business sectors, and push for public policy reforms that place profits above the rights of peoples.

If you agree with the need to put an end to the corporate capture of the UN, please sign the civil society statement and join the campaign to reclaim the UN as a peoples’ space at:
