Monsanto, America’s Monster

Few corporations in the world are as loathed—and as sinister—as Monsanto. But the threat it poses to people and planet could be reaching new heights, as the World Health Organization has recently upgraded Monsanto’s main product as carcinogenic to humans.

As Michael Jackson once sang, “They Don’t Really Care About Us”.

In spite of the protests against Monsanto held in over 40 countries this past  May, nothing changed. In fact, Monsanto was gifted a free pass with legislation intended to protect people and the environment. It will enjoy immunity from responsibility for one of the most noxious of all its toxic creations: PCBs.

In the above segment, one of  my favorite journalists, Abby Martin,  presents a scathing expose on the corporate polluter, chronicling it’s rise to power, the collusion of its crimes by the US government, and highlighting the serious danger it puts us in today.

With our slingshots, let’s cripple this Goliath!
