Welcome to the Hall of Shame—Monsanto


Monsanto—The poster child for big business we love to hate. Never has a single corporate entity-person inflicted such misery and death, and lied about it to the extent that Monsanto has. 

By Kathy Fuller, The Hillsboro Argus

The company that brought us Agent Orange and PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) now brings us Roundup Ready seeds and the synthetic bovine growth hormone rBGH. Monsanto no longer lays claim to being a chemical manufacturing company.

No. Monsanto, according to its website, is “primarily a seed and agricultural products company.” It provides “crop solutions” and “better seeds for a brighter future” for farmers.

The multinational agricultural bioengineering giant crops up periodically in the news as the defendant in yet another lawsuit about genetically modified corn, soybeans and most recently, sugar beets.

Monsanto is relentless in its public relations efforts to push away all blame and to keep on with business as usual at the expense of many.

As a result, Monsanto recently became the 2010 inductee into the Hall of Shame by the corporate watchdog group Corporate Accountability International.

Congratulations, Monsanto. We can only hope that the Hall of Shame status is an eye-opener.

What will it take for this out-of-control corporate giant to become a responsible, truthful steward in every country in which it operates?

It will take the power of the people. Read up on Monsanto’s practices. Educate yourself. And get involved. Monsanto can — and should — be held accountable.
