We also refer to our written statement on the phenomenon of the criminalization of the struggles of the Mapuche people in Chile. We then discuss the draft treaty on transnational corporations. The text presented by the Chair of the Working Group is disappointing. We explain why. Two pages are devoted to publications. The one entitled “The EU and the corporate impunity nexus” and two books, one by Jean Ziegler, the other by Jacques Berthelot. We also return to an essential point: the right to development. Finally, we present to you the new book of the CETIM: “The UN Declaration on the Rights of Peasants”
