thank you to sofia gatica
congratulations to courageous argentinian, sofia gatica, who has been fighting monsanto for over 10 years and is one of six leaders awarded the goldman environmental prize. (there's a great short video in the article too.)
it is completely baffling and disgusting that monsanto is allowed to continue their "work" (more like greedy exploitation and poisoning), given the long history of their products and actions killing, sickening, hurting people and the earth. the list of their truly evil deeds is so long and so many people fight against them (usually unsuccessfully and sometimes while having their lives/livelihoods threatened by monsanto in the process). how monsanto-ans live with themselves is a mystery.
