The Monsanto corporation is a top “corporate climate criminal” whose drive for profit and control of the global food system threatens food safety, biodiversity, and food sovereignty. Monsanto is the world’s leading producer and proponent of genetically modified agriculture. Through aggressive purchases of seed companies, Monsanto is rapidly taking control of the world’s seed supply.
In what has become a “psychiatric-pharmaceutical industrial complex,” giant drug companies have corrupted mental health institutions, research, and practice. Most major mental health organizations and institution from which the general public and doctors receive information are financially interconnected with Big Pharma. This practice needs to be abolished by law. The official psychiatric diagnostic bible that is published by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) is called the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). DSM-5 was recently approved by the APA, and according to the journal PLOS Medicine, “69% of the DSM –5 task force members report having ties to the pharmaceutical industry.”
The Green Shadow Cabinet stands in solidarity with the millions of homeowners who have lost their homes during the economic collapse. I was pleased to see homeowners standing up at the Department of Justice and non-violently occupying DOJ overnight. That nearly 50 people were arrested standing up for their rights should give courage to others to join in calling for housing justice, and give pause to the current administration in continuing policies that favor corporate profits over people.
