Could we be witnessing the beginnings of a major shift in public awareness regarding the destructive and murderous business model of companies like Bayer and Monsanto? Was Monsanto’s absorption into Bayer an early attempt at damage control in anticipation of Monsanto’s reputation being ruined forever?
US lawyers say they have “explosive” documents about crisis-hit agribusiness giant Monsanto and their affairs in Europe.
Those involved in a successful lawsuit against the firm have been in Brussels, addressing a European Parliament special committee.
Last month, Monsanto was ordered to pay 289 million dollars to a former school groundskeeper dying of cancer, after it was agreed the firm’s Roundup weedkilled contributed to his disease.
“What we have is the tip of the iceberg. And in fact we have documents now in our possession, several hundreds documents, that have not been declassified and some of those are explosive,” said US lawyer Robert Jr. Kennedy.
“And many of them are pertinent to what Monsanto did here in Europe. And that’s just the beginning.”
