-Source-France24- French Environment Minister Nicolas Hulot said Sunday he hoped the verdict against Monsanto for failing to inform the public about the risks of its product would put an end to political indifference to the danger of pesticides. Frances environment minister made his remarks after the agrochemical giant was ordered by a Californian court to pay nearly $290 million for failing to warn a dying groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson that the Monsanto product Roundup might cause cancer. Speaking in French newspaper Libration on Sunday Hulot said that the judgment against Monsanto corrects the indifference of politicians. This decision confirms what many whistleblowers have been saying for so many years about the dangerousness of glyphosate weedkiller." This is the end of arrogance for Bayer and Monsanto. But it (this verdict) can never repair what this American gardener has irreversibly suffered. This is also true for Paul Franois a Charentais cereal farmer who has been fighting Monsanto since 2007 after he was seriously poisoned by the Monsanto herbicide Lasso" said Hulot. Nothing will repair the pain and loneliness of these victims. It really is the weak fighting against the strong. Let us never forget that Monsanto dragged American farmers to court who were inadvertently growing plants patented by the group simply because the wind had spread them in their fields. Nor will this decision help the hundreds of Indian farmers who have found themselves in psychological and economic distress because of Monsanto."
