The Internationalist will be showing this documentary as part of our Croatan Earth First! Movie Night series. The event will take place Thursday, September 20th at 7pm! Earth First Movie Nights are the third Thursday of the month! (All events are free!)
This 2008 documentary is an expose on the company Monsanto, and covers the controversies surrounding the use and promotion of genetically modified seeds, PCBs, Agent Orange, and bovine growth hormone. Cases from all over the world point out how the Monsanto’s collusion with governments, pressure tactics, suppression and manipulation of scientific data, and extra-legal practices aided the company’s attempts at dominating global agriculture. Scientists, representatives of the USDA and the EPA, civil society representatives, victims of the company’s activities, lawyers, and politicians are interviewed.
