Big Media ignores worldwide Monsanto protest

If the whole world protests against Monsanto and BigMedia refuses to cover it, did it happen? Maybe not in the United States but the rest of the world is banning GMO crops even as they're allowed to pollute our agriculture here at will.

In France, justice demands recompense for Monsanto's criminal negligence.
The French court in Lyon ruled that Monsanto’s Lasso weedkiller formula, which contains the active ingredient alachlor, caused Paul Francois to develop lifelong neurological damage that manifests as persistent memory loss, headaches, and stuttering during speech. [...]

In 2007, France officially banned Lasso from use in the country in accordance with a European Union (EU) directive enacted in 2006 prohibiting the chemical from further use on crops in any member countries. But despite all the evidence proving that alachlor can disrupt hormonal balance, induce reproductive or developmental problems, and cause cancer, the chemical is still being used on conventional crops throughout the U.S. to this very day.

“I am alive today, but part of the farming population is going to be sacrificed and is going to die because of (alachlor),” added Francois to Reuters.
In the U.S. it's not just the farmers. Our entire population is endangered by the corporate coup of our government by Monsanto and other deep pocket multinational corporations who have co-opted our political class.
