Investor State Dispute Resolution and Human Rights Violations

Categoria: general,

.
So called 'investor state dispute resolutions' would abolish our democracy and national sovereignty as we know it today: companys could sue against any law affecting their future profits. They may require the public to pay high indemnifications or even worse to take back and abolish consumer, social, environmental or other regulations. The trials would be held under exclusion of the public and without any possibility to appeal. Even the local constitution and human rights are subordinated under these arbitration courts giving companies a charter for human rights violations and crimes against humanity. Unebelievable but true.
