Capitalism - Socialising The Costs


  In the year 2008, Miguel Lopez Rocha, who was fooling around on the outskirts of the Mexican city of Guadalajara, slipped and fell into the Santiago River.

  Miguel was eight years old.

  He did not drown.

  He was poisoned.

  The river contained arsenic, sulphuric acid, mercury, chromium, lead and furans, dumped into its waters by Aventis, Bayer, Nestle, IBM, DuPont, Xerox, United Plastics, Celanese and other companies from the countries that prohibit such largesse.
