Monsanto has built a whole department to enforce its seed patents and licensing agreements. It has 75 employees and an annual budget of $10 million. An estimated 400 farmers have received threats of legal action from Monsanto over alleged patent infringement... A clause in Monsanto's licensing agreement allows Monsanto to take such cases in the U.S. before courts in Missouri... Monsanto's latest foray into the courtroom has it suing a dairy in Maine, alleging that Oakhurst Dairy's marketing campaign that touts its milk as being free of artificial growth hormones is misleading.

Establishing such a body without Monsanto hijacking it would be difficult, but with enough global support it could provide the critical regulation to the GMO industry that is currently lacking. If such a body is to sell out, then it is wasting every ones time. If it is well established then it could have the integrity and power to snap Monsanto back in line or cut it down.
one of the purposes of a corporation is to serve as a mask behind which
the stockholders hide,and avoid accountability.
just find out who the stockholders are,
then we'll know who to go after

Well when Monsanto sent GM Grain seed to Haitian farmers after the quake.
The farmers just burnt the lot!
Perhaps the activist's who go around exposing bad animal farming practices could start
looking into monsanto seed warehouses.
Let It Burn
Upon arrival, these rewarded farmers took their collective Easter baskets of more than 400 tons of vegetable seeds and burned them all. "Long live the native maize seed!" they chanted in unison. "Monsanto's GMO & hybrid seed violate peasant agriculture!"

....Summit of the Horse in Las Vegas was organized by Sue Wallis, Bob Abbey and a number of others who have ties to Monsanto. A good majority of their speakers also have ties to Monsanto through various outlets. They have come up with a “plan” to save the American horse, which looks like it will lead them blindfolded right into Codex. Rather than actually dealing with the problem of too many horses, creates a worldwide market for horsemeat, thus allowing for factory farming of horses for both domestic and foreign consumption.... nonais.org...-1850587
Briefly, horse owners will be required to register their animals with a state agency (similar to the DMV) and do a transfer of ownership (like the DMV) when selling an equine (horse, donkey, etc.). Initially one must register the animals one owns now and pay “up to $100″ (in government-speak “up to” means “at least”) fee per animal!
There are many provisions in this bill for private sales as well as “registered dealers” etc. But there are also lots of seemingly humane requirements regarding shipping, etc - don’t let these fool you. Unless you are five years old, you must have noticed how everything the Government gets involved in escalates exponentially! You know the fees will continue to go UP and UP and UP! .... nonais.org...-1851356
The economic disparity between industrial farms and those that retain locally owned and controlled farms may be due in part, to the degree in which money stays in the community. Locally owned and controlled farms tend to buy their supplies and services locally, thus supporting a variety of local businesses. This phenomenon is known as the economic “multiplier” effect, estimated at approximately seven dollars per dollar earned by the locally owned farm. PEW REPORT
Indeed.. Like finding some venture capitalists and buying up a lot of old empty skyscrapers and converting them into vertical farms. Then hiring locals to tend to the farms and selling the produce out of a store on the first floor of the building.
