The Discussion We're Not Having

Al Jazeera’s Teresa Bo, reporting from Cordoba, Argentina, talks about a current trial over the spraying of "agro-chemicals" on soybeans.

What interests me is the guy saying that the courts aren't the place for this discussion, the National Assembly is the proper venue. While its true that the legislature needs to be having this discussion, it is also true that the courts are the correct venue for this. After all, the citizens are claiming damage from the soybean growers. Litigation remains an important tool for citizens of any allegedly free society.
