Don't listen to what the rich world's leaders say - look at what they do

Take the thousands of Filipino children who die every year courtesy of the formula milk corporates, backed by US lobbying

The Guardian

Trenchant condemnation of a disgusting practice that should have been stamped out years ago. I wish Monbiot had included the names of the baby formula companies in the Philippines (though they are not hard to guess) so the rest of us could boycott their other products and either sell our shares, or go to the next shareholders meeting and make a nuisance of ourselves. If you belong to a pension fund or have an RRSP you can also pester the fund managers to get out of this business. It makes the cigarette and drug companies look like good guys!
