This is a couple days old. Did an ATS Search and did not find and threads.

I am very interested in how Monsanto will react to one of their own being attacked.

Monsanto officials beaten up by Cotton farmers


Monsanto officials beaten up by Cotton farmers as Bt.cotton seed failed When news of a Monsanto senior official's arrival from Mumbai reached the nearby village of Munjala, cotton farmers of the village Karanji, about 140 K.m. from Nagpur located the Monsanto official and took him to their field where a complete failure of ‘Paras Sudarshan’ Bt cotton seed was shown to him. When the Monsanto representative failed to admit the lapse, he was severely beaten up by the farmers. It was reported that even a local agriculture officer did not come to his rescue.

Wow, I feel bad about that.

Obviously we need to take our cues from East Indian farmers.

DIE Monsanto.

Here is the link to the original website
Vidarbha Times

Please note that this story originated in a BLOG and I found only the news link in the OP while doing a Google News search for additional information.

May need to take with a grain of salt or in this case a failed Bt Cotten Seed.

I read about this a long time ago, It basically says how they introduce the seed over there to make money. Since the crop will only last one season the farmers will have to buy more seeds from "monsanto" in order to harvest next years crops.

It was said that millions would eventually go broke and starve after the GMO seed was introduced. And now here we are 2years later and its all coming true.

The documentary is called Food Inc.

Yeah, I argued against Monsanto in another thread where there was someone defending them.

He thought it was okay to do this kind of thing to people.

I think it took Indian farmers to bring perspective to Monsanto's BS.

There were farmers committing suicide because of this practice.

I guess those you know, brown, uncivilized, stupid dot head people over there who we just like to shoot, have MUCH BIGGER BALLS than any wimpy Americans.

For some reason, they are not just bending over and asking for more.....hm.

Dam those towel heads! They should shut up and take it like a fat American!

Oh wait, the "terrorists" "attacked" them just now! Time for the carpet of bombs to SAVE them!


Stop with the insults. Anonymity on the internet doesn't mean you should abandon civilized discussion. You contradict yourself when you stand against stereotyping and wiping people off the face of the earth based on the ignorance of their culture, and then yourself use stereotyping to insult an entire country. It defeats your purpose and makes you look bad. Nobody is going to take you seriously.

On topic - the documentary called "Food Inc." gives some good information as to what Monsanto does to American farmers. It is an eye-opening film for those who have never heard or seen how our food is produced in this country. I dislike Monsanto, don't want to buy their food (although it's difficult to avoid it), and I can understand the frustration of these Indian farmers. Would I advocate violence? Not sure,.... although sometimes it seems the quickest way of getting one's point across.

Indeed.

I also know I should not be "happy" about another human getting beaten..
But i honestly don't even consider Monsanto, or those who perpetuate what Monsanto is..
as "fellow human beings".

Also wrong, i know..
But I to, cannot help it.

Way to go India.

There is a special place in hell for Monsanto big wigs.

he was just an employee, not the physical representation of monsanto. i think its more than likely the guy couldnt care less about the ideals of who he works for and was just doing his job.

its sad to see people taking delight in hearing someone got beat up.

I would have buried him in the field and called Monsanto to send someone else. "The last guy never showed up"

Repeat process.

Genetically Modified Crops are to reduce the worlds population and kill humankind. Looks like India will be starving along with much of Asia

THAT is no excuse. As far as I am concerned he is an accessory to MURDER.

The man has blood on his hands for KNOWINGLY pushing a product that causes people to suicide at the rate of one every 30 minutes. Since 1995, 250,000 Indian farmers have committed suicide.

Here is a bit of history about what is really going on.
Auschwitz, in Nazi Germany, was the largest mass extermination factory in human history. Most people are unaware that Auschwitz was a 100% subsidiary of IG Farben now known as BASF, Bayer and Hoechst. For almost three decades after WWII, BASF, Bayer and Hoechst (Aventis) filled their highest position, chairman of the board, with former members of the Nazi regime. Bayer has been sued by survivors of medical experiments...

THIS is the group that man is working for!

That article moves from the "Drug Trust" alliance formed by the Rockefeller empire and the German chemical company IG Farben to the "Green Revolution"

The "Green Revolution"

A new look at international intervention came during the Indian famine of ‘65 and ‘66; the most well advertised famine to date and a major boost for RF's population control campaign. Since the Chinese Revolution, India had been the bastion of the “free (enterprise) world.” However, western businessmen had long worried over its "neutralism”, “socialism” and economic restrictions on foreigners. That ended in 1958, when India experienced a foreign exchange crisis.

The World Bank intervened with the “Aid India Club” and one billion dollars a year in aid. International investors like RF and the Ford Foundation, immediately seized the opportunity. The Ford Foundation stepped in with a “food crisis” team, pushing agricultural spending at the expense of housing and social services. Undersecretary of Commerce Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Jr., led a delegation of executives to New Delhi for the purpose of "persuading the government to adopt policies more attractive to potential investors". Rockefeller’s Jersey Standard wanted price and distribution restrictions lifted on their Bombay fertilizer plant. Petroleum producers lobbied to set up fertilizer plants to utilize naphtha, an otherwise useless petroleum by-product. The Ford and Rockefeller foundations also wanted to expand the use of their new high yield seeds, deliberately bred for large fertilizer and pesticide inputs....

Given Monsanto's nasty business practices, I am not surprised someone has finally decided to retaliate. It is about time!

Excellent news.

As Indians are killing themselves with little hope of surviving. A Monsanto drone gets beaten to a pulp.

Not that I agree with mob justice or violence, but it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy eh?



-- Also Monsanto just got hacked by anonymous.

Well evil does beget evil. The people of India know all about Karma. He's probably lucky they didn't chain him up and pull him through the fields for a couple hours.

I read some stories about their dissatisfaction months ago, always having to buy new seeds every year and unsuitable seeds at that. I also saw a video on it. If I can locate them, I'll post again about it.
