A Landmark Victory for Justice
Anyone campaigning for environmental or social justice needs to read this David and Goliath account of how a reasonable request for access to GMO permit applications catapulted an environmental watch-dog into almost a decade of litigation against the South African state and monolithic Monsanto - a battle finally won in the Constitutional Court.
Published by Biowatch South Africa, this book provides an insider's perspective on the organisational toll and lessons learnt, and serves as an inspiration to civil society and a warning to those pursuing narrow profit motives at the expense of the environment. A Landmark Victory for Justice. Biowatch's Battle with the South African State and Monsanto ... is a book about access to information, the right to know, and action in the public's interest.
