The Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal (PPT) held its opening Session on Transnational Corporations in Southern Africa in Manzini, Swaziland, on 16-17 August 2016.  The PPT analyzed a sample of cases based in Swaziland, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Zambia and Mozambique, regarding corporate intervention in the critical areas of the extractive industries and land grabbing.

In its Statement, the PPT recognizes that the communities are exposed to the intervention on their lands and life by TNCs, being victims, individually and collectively, of severe and systematic violations of their rights to life and human dignity.

The entire process of analysis, documentation and participation of the affected people will be carried out all over 2017.
