Monsanto: Corporate Villain of the Year
Fifty-one percent of those polled recently by the popular online newsletter Natural News chose Monsanto as the "Most Evil Corporation of the Year." Author and activist Mike Adams explains why:
* Monsanto behaves like an evil corporation that pretends to be angelic. The Monsanto website is an orgy of touchy-feely corporate spin that tries to position the company as the savior of life on planet Earth.
* Monsanto's GMO crops are now linked to roughly 200,000 suicides of farmers and farm workers in India.
* Monsanto put anti-GMO politicians in France and Europe on a "retaliatory target list" that was assembled by the United States ambassador to France, working in conspiracy with the leaders of the GMO industry.

Help OCA Mobilize Millions Against Monsanto and Factory Farms
The powerful antidote to corporate crime and villainy is mass grassroots awareness and grassroots action. GMOs, Factory Farms, and deceptively labeled consumer products pose a mortal threat to public health, the environment, climate stability, farm animals, and all living things. GMOs and organic crops, GMOs and biodiversity, cannot "coexist." As we speak, organic crops are being contaminated with Monsanto's GMOs. We need your financial support to educate and mobilize consumers, to protect and maintain strict organic and Fair Trade standards, and to pressure the entire food industry to adopt Truth-in-Labeling practices.
