Episode 1: The Power of the 99% to Stop Corporate Capture of the United Nations
The Power of the 99% to Stop Corporate Capture comic series will shed light on the widespread global phenomenon of corporate capture or influence on government institutions and decision-making.
The first episode illustrates the corporate capture of the United Nations and how we can overcome it. (The episode is available in English, Spanish, French and Arabic.)
