CORE's war on poor campiagn hits the airwaves - DeSmogBlog all over it

Last night we got word that Niger Innis, spokesperson for ExxonMobil, Monsanto, the Congress of Racial Equality was going to be on a CBC national radio show called The Current talking about his organization's “Stop the War on the Poor “ campaign.

We were able to get a hold of the producer of the show and provided information on CORE's cozy relationship with oil giant ExxonMobil and genetically-modified seed producer Monsanto.

Is CORE fighting for the poor or Big Oil?

UPDATE: Heard through the grapevine that CORE will be on the Canadian CBC show, the Current tomorrow morning. We've contacted the producers and have offered to provide more information.


With major corporate donations in the past from big players like Monsanto and ExxonMobil, I apologize for being more than a little cynical about the Congress of Racial Equality's latest “Stop the War on the Poor” campaign.

To say the CORE has enjoyed a cozy relationship with big industry would be an understatement. In fact, the above photo is a picture of Monsanto's Chairman and CEO, Hugh Grant chairing CORE's celebratory reception in honor of Martin Luther King Jr in 2005.
