War Over Monsanto Gets Ugly | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

War Over Monsanto Gets Ugly

A delegation of politicians and community activists gathered on August 7 in La Leonesa, a small farm town in Argentina, to hear Dr. Andres Carrasco speak about a study linking a popular herbicide to birth defects in Argentina's agricultural areas.

But the presentation never happened. A mob of about 100 people attacked the delegation before they could reach the local school where the talk was to be held.

Dr. Carrasco and a colleague locked themselves in a car as the mob yelled threats and beat on the vehicle for two hours. One delegate was hit in the spine and has since suffered lower-body paralysis. Another person was treated for blows to the head. A former provincial human rights official was hit in the face and knocked unconscious.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To believe that this mob wasn't indirectly hired by Monsanto to prevent this conference from happening is stretching the long arm of coincidence into a dislocation.
