The GM genocide: Thousands of Indian farmers are committing suicide after using genetically modified crops


www.dailymail.co.uk

When Prince Charles claimed thousands of Indian farmers were killing themselves after using GM crops, he was branded a scaremonger. In fact, as this chilling dispatch reveals, it's even WORSE than he feared.

The children were inconsolable. Mute with shock and fighting back tears, they huddled beside their mother as friends and neighbours prepared their father's body for cremation on a blazing bonfire built on the cracked, barren fields near their home.

The UN should ban any patents on GM crops.
I know of a farmer trying to grow non GM "organic" seed crops in a remote area of Nevada that is finding that his seeds are still being contaminated.

There is a major freeway a few miles away and the pollen from GM crops are coming in on tires Of vehicles

there are some organic farmers in calif and other states that are suing the GM companies for contaminating there crops.
