As far as I'm concerned, this is the most brilliant attempt at fighting Monsanto I've seen to date.
I have written many threads on Monsanto and have watched them grow into the Monster that they are. We are basically being poisoned slowly by this
company that is so intertwined in Govt. that it's impossible to not only avoid but to detect.
Every single one of us is at risk as they are gaining more ground Globally in their attempt to basically own the World's food. And they seem to be
winning because Govt. is right there with them.
So what can be done on a small scale to avoid them? Your own garden is a start with heirloom seeds that you can grow and harvest your seed for the
next year. But that isn't as safe as we would wish it to be.
Remember that if your garden somehow gets cross pollinated with Monsanto seed, you are breaking the law and they have the ability to come after you
for using their seed. Even if a bird or the wind was the cause of the cross pollination.
Supreme Court Hands Monsanto Victory Over Farmers on GMO Seed Patents and Ability to Sue
The US Supreme Court upheld biotech giant Monsanto’s claims on genetically-engineered seed patents and the company’s ability to sue farmers
whose fields are inadvertently contaminated with Monsanto materials.
So where does this leave us as humans on a planet that people want to basically own for themselves and a Govt. that helps them to do so? How is it
possible to own ALL the food? To patent it? Contaminate your land and sue for it?
It makes me wonder how easy it would be to do land grabs. Cross contaminate a farm, sue the farmer into bankruptcy and pick up that land for pennies
on the dollar. Nice set-up huh?
oops...forgot the point in my rant...
We have some heroes coming out to stand against the monster and we can all play a part...
OPEN SOURCE SEEDS!
Novel Open Source Seed Pledge aims to keep new vegetable and grain varieties free for all
This week, scientists, farmers and sustainable food systems advocates will gather on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus to celebrate an
unusual group of honored guests: 29 new varieties of broccoli, celery, kale, quinoa and other vegetables and grains that are being publicly released
using a novel form of ownership agreement known as the Open Source Seed Pledge.
The pledge, which was developed through a UW-Madison-led effort known as the Open Source Seed Initiative, is designed to keep the new seeds free for
all people to grow, breed and share for perpetuity, with the goal of protecting the plants from patents and other restrictions down the line.
