The story so far...part 1, February to May 2020

Since February of this year, every Monday we've been publishing a new episode in a series entitled EXPOSED! where we seek to expose government misconduct and corporate malfeasance, resulting in invasion of individuals basic rights, exploitation of disadvantaged groups and wide-scale environmental destruction, mostly always in the pursuit of power, money or both.

In this first omnibus edition, we are reproducing the first 10 stories in the series, many of the companies and institutions covered are household names, many are generics for their respective industries/segments. Some is historic, much is more recent. We will constantly update the articles and attempt to provide alternatives or courses of action to allow you to avoid or protest the products and acts of the EXPOSED! ones.

Frankly, some of this stuff is terrifying but unless you know, you cannot act!
