摘要

据最近披露的文件显示,孟山都对公开反对他们的活动人士和记者发起了一场宣传战,这是该公司就其畅销除草剂”农达”(Roundup)所构成的危险正在进行的法庭斗争的一部分。

Monsanto waged a propaganda war against the activist and journalists who spoke out against them,according to documents recently disclosed as a part of the company's ongoing court battle over the dangers posed by their top-selling weedkiller,"Roundup."

据最近披露的文件显示,孟山都对公开反对他们的活动人士和记者发起了一场宣传战,这是该公司就其畅销除草剂"农达"(Roundup)所构成的危险正在进行的法庭斗争的一部分。

It has come to light that the company operated a"fusion center,"where employees were given the task of spying on journalists and activists while targeting them with smear campaigns.

人们发现,该公司运营着一个"融合中心",在那里,员工被赋予监视记者和活动人士的任务,同时对他们进行诽谤活动。

Even high profile figures like Neil Young were targeted for their anti-Monsanto activism.Neil Young became such a thorn in the company's side that they actually considered legal action against him at one point.

甚至像尼尔·杨这样的知名人士也因为反孟山都的行动主义而成为攻击目标。尼尔·杨成了公司的眼中钉,他们甚至一度考虑对他采取法律行动。


Monsanto,which is now owned by Bayer,also stalked Carey Gillam,a Reuters journalist who reported on the evidence that Glyphosate,the primary ingredient in Roundup,causes cancer.

目前为拜耳(Bayer)所有的孟山都(Monsanto)也对路透社(Reuters)记者凯里·吉拉姆(Carey Gillam)进行了跟踪。吉拉姆报道了草甘膦(Roundup的主要成分)致癌的证据。

Monsanto waged a relentless campaign against Gillam's books and articles.The campaign included tampering with Google results and paying third parties to criticize her books,and spamming the Amazon pages with negative reviews.

孟山都对吉拉姆的书和文章进行了无情的攻击。这场运动包括篡改谷歌的结果,付钱给第三方批评她的书,并在亚马逊页面上发布负面评论。

The documents showed that there was also an active effort to put pressure on the editors at Reuters to have the journalist reassigned.

这些文件显示,他们还积极向路透社的编辑施压,要求重新分配这名记者的工作。

进一步:

The company actually called their base of operations for these activities an"intelligence fusion center,"a term that has a very militaristic overtone.

该公司实际上称这些活动的操作基地为"情报融合中心",这个术语带有很强的军国主义色彩。

In an interview about the recent revelations,Gillam said that she was astonished at the lengths that the company went to try to silence her.

在一次关于最近披露的信息的采访中,吉拉姆说,她对公司为了让她闭嘴所做的努力感到惊讶。

"I've always known that Monsanto didn't like my work…and worked to pressure editors and silence me.But I never imagined a multi-billion dollar company would actually spend so much time and energy and personnel on me.It's astonishing,"Gillam said.

"我一直知道孟山都公司不喜欢我的作品......他们向编辑施压,让我闭嘴。但是我从来没有想到一个价值数十亿美元的公司会在我身上花费如此多的时间、精力和人力。这令人震惊,"吉拉姆说。

Gillam said that the newly released documents were"just one more example of how the company works behind the scenes to try to manipulate what the public knows about its products and practices".

吉拉姆表示,新公布的文件"只是该公司在幕后操纵公众对其产品和实践的了解的又一个例子"

According to the Guardian,the documents also support claims that high ranking executives at Monsanto were bullying and bribing scientists to cover up the dangers of their products.

据《卫报》报道,这些文件还支持孟山都公司高层管理人员为了掩盖其产品的危险而欺凌和贿赂科学家的说法。

Democracy Now!

现在就要民主!

New documents reveal that agribusiness giant Monsanto ran a campaign to undermine critics,including reporter @careygillam."I'm one person.I'm one journalist.But what we know,from a larger trove of documents,is that this is par for the course.This is what they do."

新的文件显示,农业巨头孟山都公司发起了一场运动,以削弱批评者,其中包括记者@careygillam。"我一个人。我是一个记者。但我们从大量的文件中了解到,这是意料之中的事。他们就是这么做的。"

 


In a statement responding to the documents,Bayer spokesman,Christopher Loder said that,"Monsanto's activities were intended to ensure there was a fair,accurate and science-based dialogue about the company and its products in response to significant misinformation,including steps to respond to the publication of a book written by an individual who is a frequent critic of pesticides and GMOs".

在一份声明中对这些文件,拜耳发言人克里斯托弗·洛德说,"孟山都公司的活动是为了确保有一个公平、准确和科学的对话关于该公司及其产品在应对重大的错误信息,包括步骤应对个人写的一本书的出版是一个经常批评农药和转基因生物"。

"We take the safety of our products and our reputation very seriously and work to ensure that everyone…has accurate and balanced information,"he added.

"我们非常重视我们产品的安全和我们的声誉,并努力确保每个人......都有准确和平衡的信息,"他补充说。

A LinkedIn page for an employee that listed Monsanto as their workplace,listed"global intelligence and investigations"as their position for the company.The employee stated that they managed a"team responsible for the collection and analysis of criminal,activist/extremist,geo-political and terrorist activities affecting company operations across 160 countries".

一位员工的LinkedIn页面将孟山都列为他们的工作地点,并将"全球情报和调查"列为他们在公司的职位。该雇员说,他们管理着一个"负责收集和分析影响160个国家的公司业务的犯罪、活动分子/极端分子、地缘政治和恐怖主义活动的小组"

In 2016,one Monsanto executive responded to the controversy surrounding their payment of scientists who studied their products,saying that,"The issue was NOT that we wanted to pay the experts but an acknowledgement that experts would need to be compensated for the time they invest in drafting responses for external engagement.No one works for free!"

2016年,孟山都的一位高管回应了有关他们向研究其产品的科学家支付报酬的争议,他说,"问题不在于我们想要向专家支付报酬,而是承认,专家们在起草外部参与答复方面投入的时间需要得到补偿。没有人是免费的!"

As Truth Theory reported earlier this year,Bayer's stock price has been in a freefall since they acquired Monsanto.

正如真理理论(Truth Theory)今年早些时候报道的那样,拜耳收购孟山都(Monsanto)以来,其股价一直在直线下跌。
