Victims of Koch Greed: Atina Diffley
In 2006, Atina Diffley received a letter stating that a Koch subsidiary oil pipeline was going to cut through her organic farm, leading to no more than 12 inches of topsoil erosion. The Diffleys resolved to take action to save their farm, which served over 75,000 Twin Cities natural food co-op members. The task was daunting—not only did they have to pore through binders of paperwork coated in legal jargon, but finding a lawyer to represent them against the Kochs was next to impossible.
