The company has recently resorted to unorthodox, nay, illegal measures to maintain its stranglehold over the earth's vital food and water resources.

Great article, thank you. Good to see, albiet a little, that big biz like these are buckling. The more consumers are aware by taking off their blinkers and not believing the propaganda the sooner we will all attain better health and protection for our environment and its non human inhabitants.

From the sale of bottled water en masse in the 90s to the PRC; to slave labor in the cocoa fields this company is emblematic of what is wrong with the world today. I will not knowingly buy anything that is made by one of these mega corporations or their subsidiaries. They of course are so ubiquitous and nefarious in their pervasive drive for material wealth it's hard to find clothing for example. Then again, I don't eat a lot of chocolate and when I do which is maybe once a year it has to be organic and fair trade and not made by one of these bastards. It is our responsibility to look up the manufacturer, look up the ingredients and to educate ourselves. Know your enemy; know its strengths and weaknesses. Let the buyer and the reader beware. Use your purchasing Luke/Lucia.

Yep, stopped buying their stuff years ago and never went for the whole plastic bottled water or soda either-considered it a huge waste. When milk and sodas were in returnable glass bottles/jugs-there was not waste and if the bottles/jugs were broken-they could be remade. Not to mention the deposits from found soda bottles paid my way to go swimming at the city park pool many, many times as a kid.

I agree with Michael : "It is our responsibility to look up the manufacturer, look up the ingredients and to educate ourselves."
