From PCBs to GMOs, Monsanto has a long history of poisoning communities (especially low-income communities), poisoning the earth with dangerous chemicals, harassing and intimidating farmers, making false claims about their products and putting untested frankenfoods in our diet. This hearing, open to all, will investigate their crimes and make recommendations for how Monsanto should pay for the damage they've done.
