Last week, Children’s Health Defense launched The Defender, a news and views website that explores the theme of small (children) vs. Big Pharma, Big Tech, Big Energy, Big Food and Big Chemical.

In his “Welcome to The Defender” post, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. described The Defender as “an online news site to evade official censorship, to report fact-based news and sponsor the kind of honest debate that terrifies the new generation of corporate and government commissars.”

This week, Kennedy delves a little deeper into the “why” behind The Defender in the below featured video. 

“Corporations don’t want an informed public,” Kennedy says. “They don’t want a public that reads the science, or asks too many questions … We need to find a common ground, and that common ground is science. That’s why we’re building this institution, The Defender.”
