After experiencing the traumatizing death of her daughter to kidney failure just three days after her daughter was born, Sofia Gatica from Argentina became determined to find out what killed her daughter. Her conclusion? Monsanto’s genetically modified soy fields that surrounded her neighborhood, laced with damaging insecticides negatively affecting nearby neighborhood children and adults alike.

Gatica began to detail how her small town was plagued with astronomically high birth defect rates, respiratory disease, and even infant mortality. From this point, the courageous mother decided to take on Monsanto

This story gives me great encouragement, as I've begun to Investigate how I can take Tepco & the Japanese Government to trial. In a video I posted in the Fukushima thread Dr Busby mentioned a book called Defending the Environment: Civil Strategies to Enforce International Environmental Law by Linda A. Malone & Scott Paternack.

The structure of the book is great, easy to read, giving you the ins and outs of how to go about putting a case together. How not to go about it and many contacts and tables of info on the various organizations that deal with environmental law.

I'm under no illusion how long this may take, but I can't take reading about Fukushima and other Nuke related horror stories anymore without doing something about it.

In regards to the article
Quote:Argentina’s Supreme Court not only banned chemical spraying near populated areas, but demanded that the government, as well as soy manufacturers, now prove that these chemicals are safe.

From an article I read recently Argentina should really diversify its agri business away from Soy, its unsustainable after a few short years the ground is useless for growing anything at all. We all know about Monsanto and round up.
