Big River Earth First! and “mud people” demonstrate against Monsanto’s corporate sponsorship of Earth Day 1990. The person standing behind the over-sized check was questioned by a reporter from a NBC TV affiliate in St. Louis. The mud person interviewed replied in “mud language” which was translated into English by one of the protesters. The segment aired that evening as the lead story on the local NBC TV news. Monsanto did not comment.
