Adbusters

Inglorious Bastards

Beat back the Dirty Dozen, one corporate criminal at a time.

If humanity is to have a future then we the people have no choice but to take on and beat back the mega-corporations who currently control just about every aspect of life on this planet. We have to tactfully, masterfully, relentlessly learn how to bend them to our will and, if necessary, wipe some of the corporations out. Until we, The People, set the bar by wiping a criminal corporation out of existence, then there will be no justice and the corporations will only continue to act with impunity. And so our strategic imperative post-Occupy is to wield our coordinated energy – our movement’s ability to have simultaneous protests in far-flung locales – to bring down a transnational capitalist firm. One bastard at a time.

At Adbusters, we think that from an operational perspective Goldman Sachs makes a perfect, first target. And today's protests outside Goldman Sachs offices in New York City and Los Angeles offer a flicker of a hope, that another of those rare global A-ha moments might be just over the horizon ... one when we the people will suddenly wake up to our own power, learn to harness the raw creativity and leaderless horizontalism and send a powerful chilling message to criminal CEOs like Lloyd Blankfein – that from now on they will pay a heavy price for any betrayal of the public trust.

But there's a whole list of corporate criminals that warrant our heat. We call these the Dirty Dozen. One of the world's worst offenders is the GMO crazed Monsanto Corporation and its sneering CEO, Hugh Grant, who poison our food supply and ravage the land with their frankenfood.

Monsanto has been removed and banned from Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Japan, Luxembourg, Madeira, New Zealand, Peru, South Australia, Russia, France and Switzerland. Why not yet in America? Canada? England? Australia? Spain? Mexico, and the rest?

On Saturday, join us in cities across the world as we focus our collective energy against Monsanto, a target all of humanity can agree deserves to be taken out.

I dearly hope that you are speaking figuratively here. The war path is an ugly path indeed.

As anyone who knows American history the founders had a healthy distrust of corporations and kept them on a short leash. A corporation had to be chartered for a specific purpose eg. a toll road for a specific length of time eg. 20 or 30 years after which they were to be dissolved. If a corporation betrayed the public trust the suffered the human equivalent of the death penalty dissolution. How tragic and far we've come from those early years.

So now Adbusters is calling people who operate legal corporations 'criminals' and threatens to murder them.

You guys and Kallle Lasn are a bunch of misguided or insane cowards. Take your threats further and you will have the police watching you or better yet, you'll be put into jails.

"kill off" refers to killing off corrupt/criminal corporations by revoking their charters, definitely and clearly not killing people.

"Monsanto has been removed and banned from Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Japan, Luxembourg, Madeira, New Zealand, Peru, South Australia, Russia, France and Switzerland." I see this exact quote all over the internet. It's become a FB meme. What exactly is meant by this statement?
