If everybody in this country maintains the mentality that there is nothing we can do to obtain 'human rights' in this nation, simply because we have taken them for granted and done nothing in the past,
you are probably right.

Several of MONSANTO's products have been linked to cancer, several more are proven killers, they have no conscious when it comes to contaminating rivers, lakes, or entire communities, then intentionally lying and covering up the effects and quantities of their hazzardous waste,
And they run the White-House.
Please don't think I am not aware that it all seems a little too unrealistic...
this event didn't even slow them down.
In the Washington Post article (Jan 1, 2002) "Monsanto Hid Decades Of Pollution PCBs Drenched Ala. Town, But No One Was Ever Told" a grim story of Monsanto's treacherous behavior in Anniston Alabama was revealed. It is summed up in this chilling paragraph: "They also know that for nearly 40 years, while producing the now-banned industrial coolants known as PCBs at a local factory, Monsanto Co. routinely discharged toxic waste into a west Anniston creek and dumped millions of pounds of PCBs into oozing open-pit landfills. And thousands of pages of Monsanto documents -- many emblazoned with warnings such as "CONFIDENTIAL: Read and Destroy" -- show that for decades, the corporate giant concealed what it did and what it knew."  (www.commondreams.org...)  (www.chemicalindustryarchives.org...)
"In 1966, Monsanto managers discovered that fish submerged in that creek turned belly-up within 10 seconds, spurting blood and shedding skin as if dunked into boiling water. They told no one."
"Sylvester Harris, 63, an undertaker who lived across the street from the plant, said he always thought he was burying too many young children. 'I knew something was wrong around here,' he said."
The jury apparently agreed with plaintiff attorney Donald Stewart, who claims that Monsanto, Solutia and Pharmacia did everything they could "to cover up the PCB problem and avoid cleaning up the mess. No one could find out the extent or nature of the contamination and what it had done to this community."
