An organic farmer against Monsanto contamination

Sunday, February 09, 2014

This lawsuit seems to be the first of it's kind and could set a precedent. But only if enough people support this farmer.

    That is too bad, there was a farmer in Canada who had a law suit against Monsato as well, and they never countered in the law suit, if they had a different storey would be told else where. Evidently Monsato owns the wind... that is the issue really... emoticon

    And yet our government will not even require labeling!! Know your farmer close up and personally, support the small farmer, make him your best friend. Most of all ask questions. Right now the only way you can be sure you are not eating GMO's is to ear only organic whole foods.

    That he even has this fight on his hands saddens and angers me. A local famer here (Percy Schmieser, CANADA) fought Monasanto many years ago with everything he had for similar reasons. Unfortunately, he lost and was nearly bankrupted in the process. I cannot imagine how it makes sense to anyone to continue to allow this company to continue to trod roughshod on anyone and everyone who gets in thier way. I can't even undertand the reasoning which allows a company to patent/own the rights to a seed, yet have no liability when that seed escapes it's boundaries. SIGH. Anyone see Jurassic Park? This isn't so different, is it?

    Most times Monsanto also goes after the farmer and say that he stole their product and then the farmer looses his farm because of the corrupt judge that sides with monsanto.
