ABOUT THE AWARDS

The Golden Toilet Brush Awards
for evil corporations who get away with it

We live in a world of corporate power and corporations have used it to make a horrible mess. Multinationals are causing environmental and social devastation around the world. But instead of being brought to justice, they get away with it. This is partly because they can use their international structures to evade justice. But they also use an obscure system to bully our governments into doing their bidding.

ISDS is a system of secretive “corporate courts” that exist purely for the benefit of multinationals and the super-rich. We need to end ISDS and replace it with a UN treaty that will hold corporations to account for their violations. So we’ve started a campaign to do just that – stop ISDS and end corporate impunity but before we do, let’s give them some appreciation first. The Golden Toilet Brush Awards for just how much they’ve been able to get away with.

We need YOU to vote for whoever you think deserves the Golden Toilet Brush Award for “Worst Company”. And you do this by flushing the worst offenders away down the toilet where they belong! Sound like fun?
