Not The First Case

Although Francois’s story is one of few positive endings, his is not the only case where people have attempted to hold Monsanto accountable for their dangerous actions. In 2011, he and other farmers formed an association to help raise awareness and go after Monsanto for the negative effects their products have on farmers. Awareness of the association grew and their claims were met by other farmers who were experiencing similar illnesses. Since 1996, the agricultural branch of the French social security system has gathered about 200 alerts per year regarding sickness related to pesticides. It is unfortunate to say that only 47 cases were even recognized in the past 10 years.

Francois, whose life was damaged by Monsanto’s products, has been successful in his quest to hold Monsanto accountable and has now set a powerful precedent for other farmers looking to do the same.

Someone told me long ago There's a calm before the storm I know it's been coming for some time

When it's over so they say It'll rain on a sunny day I know, shinning down like water

I want to know Have you ever seen the rain I want to know Have you ever seen the rain Coming down on a sunny day

Yesterday and days before Sun is cold and rain is hard I know, been that way for all my time

'Til forever, on it goes Through the circle of fast and slow I know it can't stop, I wonder

I want to know Have you ever seen the rain I want to know Have you ever seen the rain Coming down on a sunny day

I want to know Have you ever seen the rain I want to know Have you ever seen the rain Coming down on a sunny day
