This concluding chapter briefly describes some important events in Nocorá in the years 2006–2012, such as the emergence of powerful anti-corporate movements in 2011. The latter was exemplified by the Occupy Wall Street protests, which resonated with the Nocoreños the author spoke with. However, these social movements had not yet caused most to rethink their community's ongoing ties to the pharmaceuticals in a substantial way. These stories, in light of changing levels of global awareness of corporations, invite the reader to consider what lasting impact, in some cases if any, these social movements have had for environmental health in Puerto Rico, and for other communities with powerful corporate neighbors.
