Monsanto Goes To Trial For Crime Against Nature And Environment; ‘Most Serious Threat Humans Ever Faced?’ - And A Book For Us Navy Types

This was originally posted on the 5th... then disappeared ???

The information on Naval history in Vietnam, thanks to Paul Sutton, follows. I found it an interesting read, and as accurate as anything I have read. As it is available as a downloadable PDF, the cost is nominal. And yes, we who were stationed in Vinh Long (that would include me), were six miles inland and another 2 miles from the Army airbase.

As to Monsanto going to trial, only time will tell - I'll keep my eyes open and report back

Navy in Vietnam...

​A book by Naval Historian Dr. John Sherwood which has been in the works for about 8 years was recently published. The book is "War in the Shallows", and covers TF 115, 116, 117 and the Tet Offensive. The book is very well researched with detailed references to sources, and the events are described by using multiple cross references. The book is published by the Government Printing Office, and is in back order. Their plans to do a reprint are uncertain.  I'm not sure how many copies were initially printed. The book is available in e-reader formats from Amazon. And, here is a link to a PDF file that contains the book for reading on your computer: http://www.history.navy.mil/content/dam/nhhc/research/publications/publication-508-pdf/WITS_508.pdf

We are in Paris this month to address the most serious threat that humans have ever faced in our 100-200,000 year evolution. Monsanto’s trial for crimes against humanity and nature is scheduled to take place in The Hague, Netherlands in Oct of next year. Biotech company Monsanto will face international tribunal over crimes against nature and humanity, and ecocide. "The Tribunal will rely on the 'Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights' adopted at the UN in 2011. It will also assess potential criminal liability on the basis of the Rome Statue that created the International Criminal Court in The Hague in 2002, and it will consider whether a reform of international criminal law is warranted to include crimes against the environment or ecocide, as a prosecutable criminal offense, so that natural persons could incur criminal liability," the Monsanto Tribunal, an international group of professionals, said in a statement. The group also includes Organic Consumers Association (OCA), IFOAM International Organics, Navdanya, Regeneration International (RI), and 'Millions Against Monsanto' according to a report by Disinformation. "The time is long overdue for a global citizens' tribunal to put Monsanto on trial for crimes against humanity and the environment. We are in Paris this month to address the most serious threat that humans have ever faced in our 100-200,000 year evolution-global warming and climate disruption," Ronnie Cummins, president of the Organic Consumers Association, said. Monsanto's trial for crimes against humanity and nature is scheduled to take place in The Hague, Netherlands in Oct of [2016]. Monsanto is responsible for the development of "toxic chemicals" like Agent Orange, White Phosphorous, pesticides and herbicides according to a report by True Activist. Polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB), one of the 12 Persistent Organic Pollutants (POP), affects human and animal fertility. Agent Orange was used by the US Army during the Vietnam War and continues to cause birth defects and cancer. RoundUp, a herbicide, contains glyphosate according to Care2 Healthy Living. World Health organization categorized it as a probable human carcinogen, but it is used in combination with genetically modified RoundUp Ready seeds of corn, soybeans and rapeseed for animal feeds and biofuels.
