Organic Consumers Association Occupies Monsanto Headquarters
Shareholders of Monsanto stocks gathered at the headquarters of the world's largest biotech company in St. Louis on Tuesday.
Activist Adam Eidinger, an OCA member representing Harrington Investments (a socially responsible investor's group), got inside the meeting to speak in favor of a shareholders' resolution which would have studied the "material financial risks or operational impacts associated with its (Monsanto's) chemical products and genetically modified organisms." Outside the meeting a crowd of OCA demonstrators gathered in protest. As expected, the resolution was voted down, but the message that Monsanto will someday have to pay for its crimes was heard loud and clear.
