In 1996, Monsanto introduced its first GMO seeds. It ensured that farmers could not save the seeds and essentially lose the ownership of their seeds. Consequently, the power balance shifted away from the farmers to corporations who now own 80 percent of GM corn and 93 percent of the GM soy market. Now farmers not only have to buy the seeds from the corporations year after year, but they are also forced to comply with the rules and regulations embedded in the contracts, which are designed to put the farmers at a juridical disadvantage. Since they have been wrongly accused, Dave Runyon, Troy Roush and Moe Parr have traveled the world speaking out publicly about Monsanto’s reckless business policies.
It’s a biotech takeover disguised as a “right to farm” movement to protect small farmers. Don’t be fooled. Just look at the list of supporters.
You! That’s right, you! Put your hands up and back away from the seed bag…

Tell me again about how I should feel grateful that Monsanto tells us that it will not sue if the contamination levels of its GMO seeds in our crops are under 1% when the seed we purchase is contaminated with levels of 1-3%, with an average likely of at least 2%?
