It’s official. The Monsanto Corporation is the “Most Evil Corporation” in the world according to a recently released poll and the The Light Brigade Network shined the same sentiment this week, in advance of yesterday’s global March Against Monsanto ”March For Food Freedom” day of action. The eight grassroots groups from around the country took out different LED illuminated messages to places of high visibility to raise awareness about the Saturday day of action against Monsanto.
