Crossett’s Georgia-Pacific targeted in recent documentary

A release from the Brave New Foundation lists “the many sins of the Koch Brothers,” who own what the foundation claims is a cancer-causing Georgia-Pacific plant in Crossett, Ark.

From 15 families who live on Penn Road, along which a chemical-filled canal flows, 11 have died following bouts of cancer, according to the release.

Robert Greenwald, of BNF, explained that Koch Industries has a long history of environmental violations and multimillion fines, but is often backed by the politicians to whom it donates money.

“We spent months working on this to ensure we were making the larger point: This is what happens when people with too much money decide that they are going to make the system work for them and only them,” said Greenwald.
