The International People’s Tribunal on U.S. Imperialism: Sanctions, Blockades, and Economic Coercive Measures.

The Frantz Fanon Foundation supports and participates in the organization of the Peoples’ Tribunal on US imperialism. Press conference on Friday, March 18  at 9.30 am PST (Register)

Presently, the United States, with the support of the United Nations and European Union, has imposed sanctions and other economic coercive measures on over 30 percent of the global population, mostly located in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Sanctions are one of the key tools of U.S. imperialism, leading to mass starvation and suffering of peoples in the Global South, while opening up markets to U.S. and European corporations.

The International People’s Tribunal on U.S. Imperialism: Sanctions, Blockades & Economic Coercive Measures will challenge the economic atrocities committed by the United States through the use of the law, highlighting the unlawful, unjust, and colonial nature of economic coercive measures.

In collaboration with international scholar activists and legal experts, the People’s Tribunal will host an introductory webinar to discuss the urgent need to take legal action against U.S. sanctions and economic coercive measures session on March 18 at 9:30am PST.
