Urge the White House to hold Monsanto & Co accountable

Since the death of her newborn from exposure to pesticides 13 years ago, Sofía Gatica has been working tirelessly with other moms to hold Monsanto and Co. accountable for the harms they impose. She went to the White House in April to ask President Obama to do the same.
Urge the White House to respond» Sofía — winner of the 2012 Goldman Environmental Prize — hand-delivered a request to top White House official, Ms. Nancy Sutley of the Council on Environmental Quality, urging the Administration to investigate Monsanto’s “pesticide poisonings and livelihood harms” in her Argentine community, the U.S. and beyond.
Ms. Sutley promised Sofía a response by June 1, but that deadline has come and gone.
Along with the letter — co-authored by PAN — calling on Obama to act, Sofia delivered a copy of the verdict from a recent international tribunal which found the Big 6 pesticide/biotech corporations (Monsanto, Bayer, Syngenta, Dow, Dupont and BASF) guilty of violating human rights. The verdict was based on powerful testimonials from people from around the world whose lives, like Sofía's, have been irrevocably harmed by the pesticide industry.
