Monsanto to be held accountable
Friday, December 11, 2015
I am the daughter of a vietnam veteran who was poisoned by our government while fighting as a member of the United States army. My son is now a member himself in the U.S. Army like his grandfather was. I have been fighting a huge battle for several years with deteriorating health a for the agent orange/dioxin poisoning he got while in Vietnam as are many other children of vets as well as their grandchildren maybe as far as 7 generations could be affected. We are fighting to get health studies and benifits that we need to help our families get by. I found this article especially exciting.
Remember the same people who are spraying your produce are responsible for spraying agent orange!
Agent Orange Producer Monsanto Going to Trial For Crimes Against Humanity
If you’ve been waiting to finally see Monsanto – one of the most hated companies in the world – to pay for its ecocide, knowing harm of human life, and devastation of our pollinators, then you won’t have to wait much longer. Several activist groups joined by food and farming experts are suing Monsanto for their crimes against humanity.
Finally, Monsanto, the US-based, transnational company responsible for introducing multiple genetically modified crops and numerous toxic chemicals into our environment – including saccharin, aspartame, polystyrene, DDT, dioxin, Agent Orange, petroleum based fertilizers, recombinant bovine growth hormones (rGBH), Round Up (glyphosate), Lasso (an herbicide used in Europe), Bt toxic plants, and more – will have to answer to the world for its reign of terror. Monsanto has acted with severe negligence, and the hubris and supremacy of a corporation given personhood, but no longer.
The Organic Consumers Association (OCA), IFOAM International Organics, Navdanya, Regeneration International (RI), and Millions Against Monsanto, along with dozens of global food, farming, and environmental justice groups announced at the United Nations conference held recently in Paris that an international court of lawyers and judges will assess Monsanto’s criminal liability for their atrocious acts.
The court, in The Hague, Netherlands, will use the UN’s ‘Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights’ developed in 2011 to assess damages for Monsanto’s acts against human life and the environment.
