life spans are longer now than ever before, populations are healthier, technology is progressing. There are problem areas that need to be resolved, but overall, GMO crops have also stemmed hunger in many parts of the world and allowed for people to get out of a cycle of despair from drought and crop failure.
Old hippy women spouting "the scientists say" game is not convincing me one way or the other.
What Suzuki says is more correct, "they don't know", but then, we didn't know that carrots were ok to eat until the 15h century! we didn't eat potatoes before either in the medieval times because they weren't fit for human consumption.
Besides, if humans are decimated and brought down in numbers because of some folly in our food production, then I don't see how that's a bad thing for the world overall, although it would be a tragedy for those individuals, it would be a boon to the planet! lol

First of all, why is the cast made up of women? I did not recognize Monsanto in the title so I figured the video was about some feminine product. Then I realized that is wasn't and that left me wondering why this video was made up of women?

And if tehy ever sue you for anything, its time to ensure we don't allow martyrs. IE. Round table signatures from all willing to show up in court and say, None of US will comply with this law, release our freedom fighter honest citizen now, YOU ARE ALL THE CRIMINALS. We will be pressing charges against this entire court and judge, and perform citizens arrests unless you drop these ridiculous TREASONOUS charges now.

Yes the farmer will have to pay monsanto because a law was in place in the 90's creating the "patent to life" rights. Monsanto can sue because you now have their DNA in your crop, eventhough it was caused by "nature".

Janice Fiels (Pres/CEO of McDonalds) is a Director of Monsanto. As is Gwen King, who is also a Director of Lockheed Martin. 2 VPs are female.
In the previous chapter, we saw that BASF, Bayer and Hoechst were the principal actors behind Hitler's conquests of power and the main beneficiaries of his campaigns of total global domination. But there is more. Together these three firms owned 100% of IG Auschwitz, the largest industrial complex outside the borders of the German Reich. The Auschwitz concentration camp was nothing more than an industrial slave labor compound for these large firms....
Just fifteen years after they were convicted in the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal, these companies were again the architects of the next major human rights offences. In 1962, they established the Codex Alimentarius Commission.
This dark period of German history is inextricably bound to one man, Fritz ter Meer.
* He was a member of the Managing Board of IG Farben from its inception to its dissolution. As the Wartime Manager, he was responsible for IG Auschwitz.
* In the Nuremberg Tribunal, ter Meer stated: "Forced labor did not inflict any remarkable injury, pain, or suffering on the detainees, particularly since the alternative for these workers would have been death."
* In 1948, ter Meer was sentenced by the Nuremberg Tribunal to seven years in prison for plundering and slavery.
* In 1952, his sentence was commuted, due to the influence of powerful friends.
* From 1956-1964, he was reinstated as a member of the Managing Board of Bayer AG.
* In 1962, ter Meer was one of the architects of the Codex Alimentarius Commission and one of the main designers of the schemes that would profit from human suffering.
The deceptive title "Codex Alimentarius" is no accident. It was devised by the same firms and indeed the same individuals, who gave the Auschwitz concentration camp inmates the deceptive slogan "Arbeit mach frei" ("Work makes you free").
