I have read quite a bit in the past couple of years about the methods Monsanto has used to take over agriculture here in the US. They've bankrupted numerous farmers who used to save their own seed but now must purchase their seed from Monsanto. Most of the seed saver equipment has been rendered useless except for a few (less than 6) owned by private parties. One of these owners was hiring himself out to farmers to save their seed but Monsanto got wind of it and took him to court and he lost everything. A handful of farmers are fighting back and purchasing non Monsanto seeds so now about 10% of our soy crops are non GM. We all need to be more aware and purchase only non GM products and send them a message.
What happened to the freedoms guaranteed in this country? What happened to freedom of choice?
I had no idea they were also forcing their way into foreign countries and using their criminal like tactics to drive the farmers into the ground. How can they get away with this?
