Farmers Fighting Back Against Monsanto

I reall, really, REALLY hope this happens!  Monsanto has gotten very pushy and aggressive and needs to go.  Next stop, Cargill and Tyson.

What really upsets me about the whole Monsanto legal &^%$ is that Monsanto is able to sue farmers, but it should be the other way around. Monsanto pollen is tresspassing onto organic fields and causing harm to the organic fields....and Monsanto has been able to win in courts over this simple fact. Money, money, money rules the courts.

Another thing that could bring Monsanto down is if there were legal requirements to label foods as GMO. I think that a LOT more people would be voting with their pocket book if they were able to choose which foods to buy at the store and avoid those GMO's.

We have laws that require manufacturers to label where a pair of sneakers are made, but consumers don't have a right to know where their food comes from & if it's natural or GMO??? What a crock!

Done ranting now.

Hope you're enjoying the nice weather!

I was not aware of the Monsanto problem until I watched Food Inc. But all the bullying and sueing has got to stop. It's time for the farmers to unite and take it to the government. Something has to be done. I think the correct term for Monsanto is "Monopoly". Their is a few other terms I could use but I'll keep them to myself.

Right on, guys. One of the best things we can do is tell others about Monsanto, Cargill, Tyson and all the rest.
