Activists Halt Monsanto Seed Plant Construction in Argentina

• naturalsociety.com
Activists filed the initial complaint to put the brakes on the factory, citing health and environmental concerns associated with genetically-modified crops and their production. But Monsanto is fighting back.
“We have filed a criminal complaint to inform the prosecutor of certain irregularities in violation of environmental law that have occurred in the heart of the Ministry of the Environment which is involved with authorizations of projects,” attorney Raúl Montenegro told Revolution News, according to GMWatch.org.
The decision by the court is being celebrated by protestors in Malvinas Argentina in the Cordoba Province, where they’ve blocked Monsanto employees from working on the site for 113 days. They physically prevented the ongoing construction while awaiting a decision by the court.
