Monsanto in Argentina

Monsanto in Argentina

An activist at our CBL was very displeased with Monsanto’s harmful monopolization of the agricultural industry in the U.S. Monsanto is not only poisoning America, but is spreading to other countries such as Argentina.

  1. This article is in direct correlation with what we have recently been discussing in our conversation on Flammable: Environmental Suffering in an Argentine Shantytown. Like Flammable, Monsanto, another Argentine shantytown, has pollution that negatively affects the health of the inhabitants. Birth defects, cancer, and other diseases has damaged the reputation of the town as well as put many lives at risk. These risks are due to a variety of things including uncertainty, distrust, and no communal action. It frustrates me that these bio-technical and agrarian industries have such a negative and profoundly nonchalant attitude towards the damage they cause. They are using, profiting, and benefiting from these economically, politically, and socially vulnerable areas. These economic power-house’s exploitation of the “lesser” is immoral, unjust, and inhumane and without the knowledge that they are being taken advantage of, the people of this town do not have the resources, the understanding, and the power to make a difference and take a stance.

  2. SORRY, MADE A TEXTUAL ERROR. PLEASE REFER TO THIS POST.

    This article is in direct correlation with what we have recently been discussing in our conversation on Flammable: Environmental Suffering in an Argentine Shantytown. Like Flammable, the entirety of Argentina has been negatively affected by an industrial superpower. Birth defects, cancer, and other diseases has damaged the reputation of the company, Monsanto, as well as put many lives at risk. These risks are due to a variety of things including uncertainty, distrust, and no communal action within the country. It frustrates me that these bio-technical and agrarian industries have such a negative and profoundly nonchalant attitude towards the damage they cause. They are using, profiting, and benefiting from these economically, politically, and socially vulnerable areas. These economic power-house’s exploitation of the “lesser” is immoral, unjust, and inhumane and without the knowledge that they are being taken advantage of, the people of Argentina (and other countries where the wealthy unjustifiably exploit the poor) do not have the resources, the understanding, and the power to make a difference and take a stance.
