Monsanto Attempts To Change Name

Source: True Activist

This week it was reported that Monsanto recently attempted to change their name, since they have now become one of the most hated organizations on the face of the planet. In a recent merger agreement with Swiss biotech rival Syngenta, Monsanto allegedly tried to propose creating a new company entirely, in order to deceive the public about who was in charge .

Last week,  Syngenta made a letter public, which was sent from Monsanto CEO Hugh Grant back in April 18th, during the negotiations of the merger. In the letter, Grant suggested that as a part of their agreement, Monsanto would “also propose a new name for the combined company to reflect its unique global nature.”

As Gary Ruskin of the consumer organization U.S. Right to Know pointed out “Monsanto wants to escape its ugly history by ditching its name. This shows how desperate Monsanto is to escape criticism: of its products, which raise environmental and health concerns, as well as concerns about corporate control of agriculture and our food system.”

After years of research and a series of unpleasant experiences concerning the current child protection services system, Alec Cope decided to combat the cancerous corruption through information. Freelance writing articles as a form of protest and distributing them throughout his former high-school and local area, Alec struck special chords with whomever he was in contact with.

Alec has been involved in activism such as sit down protests as well as Idle No More gatherings. Being independent for the majority of his time, Alec became a member of the WeAreChange family to assist one of the organizations that inspired him to become active in the first place. With a larger platform and positive support Alec has committed the majority of his time to research, writing, and maintaining social media with the goal to continue expanding the awakening sweeping throughout all levels of society.

Growing up within a rural area in Northern Michigan as well as being a native American descendant, Alec is seeking to expose environmental abuse in his state as well as globally. A high-school dropout, Alec chases his passion for writing and empowering individuals while showing any isolated person that they too can overcome the odds with a community that will support them. Alec lives in the lower peninsula of Michigan near Kalamazoo.
