I just signed a petition to ask our government to stop the Monsanto monopoly.
They are gaining control over a majority of the world’s seeds, through acquisitions and cut-throat business practices has cornered 90% of the soy, 65% of the corn, and 70% of the cotton market, and has a rapidly growing presence in the fruit and vegetable market, all without government anti-trust officials raising an eyebrow.
This firm is known for their terrorizing of small farmers and entire rural farming communities with lawyers and lawsuits. They are one of the leaders in genetically modifying seeds. They genetically modify seeds to tolerate their product, Roundup. Meaning, these food crops are throughout their life are going to be doused with a toxic poison. The seeds may be roundup ready, but how about you and me? Roundup is poisoning peasants in South America, where soy fields are fast replacing grass based cattle ranches.
They are poisoning us all with their Round-up herbicide.
The world will be a safer place without this bad corporate citizen.
Please sign the petition. Here is the link to the Bust Monsanto’s Monopoly petition.
