The 14 Worst Corporate Evildoers
Expose every one of them:

Quote:14 Most Evil Corporations

Evil Corps

Tis the festive season, when we splash our money around money on gifts, choccies and fripperies. But how evil are the companies we’re buying products from? Will your box of After Eights help fund killing babies? Will that economy-sized barrel of Coca Cola funnel money to a company that murders trade union organisers? Is the “Asda price” ruined communties and sweatshop-produced goods?

Several of the companies below are being sued under the Alien Tort Claims Act, a law that allows citizens of any nationality to sue in US federal courts for violations of international rights or treaties. When corporations act like criminals, we have the right and the power to stop them, holding leaders and multinational corporations alike to the accords they have signed. Around the world–in Venezuela, Argentina, India, and right here in the United States–citizens are stepping up to create democracy and hold corporations accountable to international law.

Good question, I'd like to know why caterpillar (as in rival to JCB?) are more evil than the pharma companies.

Exactly. I found some of these were subjective while leaving out the obvious.

I'm going to dig around for some more "lists" and post some of the better ones.

I don't trust Alternet and think they are a left gatekeeper organization. This doesn't mean there is not good info to be gleaned there, just that one should keep in mind that it may be incomplete. This list is a good example.

I think Catepillar's on there for selling bulldozers to Israel.
Don't believe anything they say.
And at the same time,
Don't believe that they say anything without a reason.
