Monsanto trying to take over world seed supply, nation by nation
He who controls the seed controls the food supply; and he who controls the food supply controls the world. There is no question that Monsanto is on a mission to monopolize the conventional seed market. In fact, they are steadfastly working towards the goal of creating a world where 100% of all commercial seeds are genetically modified and patented- basically a world where natural seeds are extinct.(http://www.naturalnews.com/029325_M...)
Yep, the creators of chemicals that will go down in history
for their toxicity and horrific side effects, is attempting to take over the world's seed supply. Ask yourself- do you really want companies such as BASF, Bayer, DuPont, Syngenta, and Dow involved with your food
? Sadly, to a large extent they already are. These Monsanto chemical and GMO cronies all share genetically engineered
traits and create the patented herbicides
and pesticides that GMO crops
require to thrive.
Monsanto is infamous for taking advantage of small farmers
, and with the advent of MoU's they are doing so with governmental license. Countries like India
, Pakistan, Australia, and New Zealand have all executed MoU's with Monsanto. MoU's or memorandum's of understanding permit Monsanto to use publicly owned lands to create so called demonstration farms
(GMO breeding camps) which in turn -at least in the case of Rajasthan - are subsidized by the government
Monsanto literally takes farmer
seeds, creates genetically engineered copycat versions, and then retains all intellectual property rights. Dr. Vandana Shiva, Executive Director of the Navdanya Trust, an Indian organization committed to organic
biodiversity, states that "the MoU's will in effect, facilitate bio-piracy of Rajasthan's rich biodiversity of draught -resilient crops .... by failing to have any clauses that respect the Biodiversity Act and the Farmers' Rights Act, the MoU's promote bio-piracy and legalize the great seed robbery."
