    Default Now Monsanto goes after civil society

    20 February 2018

    Avaaz, which the Guardian calls "the globe's largest and most powerful online activist network", and which promotes citizen action on issues such as climate change, human rights, corruption, poverty, and toxics, has been hit with a 168-page court subpoena from Monsanto.

    Avaaz does great work. I encourage everyone to send a small donation if they can. I would hate to lose such an important organisation.

    I find it hard to believe that Monsanto needs all our private information, or that that "need" was approved by a court of law. That just seems unconstitutional to me. It's a massive invasion of privacy!
