There are two things that PAN and Occupy hold deeply in common: (1) We know that corporate control of our government, economy and food system undermines our attempts to push forward real change. And (2) As government has failed to rein in the corporate occupation of our food and farms, we believe we must hold them to account ourselves. And so we move forward. PAN will bring the Big 6 pesticide corporations to rigorous, public trial on December 3, 2011 in Bangalore, India.
I will be there, testifying and reporting from the ground, alongside hundreds of others from the 99% — farmers, farmworkers and scientists who feed our world. I hope to see you engaged and active, too.
