A few short days ago, on April 28th, in the city of Basel Switzerland, I attended and spoke at the annual shareholders meeting of the transnational corporation and chemical giant, Syngenta,
I spoke from the podium directly to the Syngenta Board of Directors and the nearly 1,000 Shareholders in attendance.
My message was clear and unambiguous. I asked them to withdraw from their lawsuit against the County of Kauai, [Hawai’i] to honor and follow our laws, and to give our community the same respect and protections afforded to the people in their home country of Switzerland.
I pointed out that their company Syngenta uses highly toxic Restricted Use Pesticides (RUP’s) in our community, including atrazine, paraquat and 4 others that they are forbidden by law from using in their own country.
