Finally some farmers here in Australia are waking up and looking to get rid of GM wheat.
Hopefully this will spread further into the rural community.

The Govt here has a soft spot for monsanto (like any other big corporation).

Some good points that they are raising is the legal crap that Monsanto brings with its toxic products


...
The Network of Concerned Farmers urged consumers to oppose the GM industry's push into Australia and "reject underhand deals favouring the GM industry".
...
Farmer protection legislation should also be introduced to stop traditional farmers being held liable for GM contamination of their crops, it added.

I can live without corn and soy, but not the wheat. I don't want to be a guinea pigs to the Monsanto monsters.

Instead of following the book, the farmers should beat up the representatives and set fire to their headquarters.

Why you ask?

It scares them the # away.


It's naive to believe these people will be held responsible with the help of the law. The very same laws they lobby for are not going to do anything against these corporations. Time to wake up for the farmer in Australia.

This can't take place. We can't allow Australia to become the guinea pig for CSIRO/Monsanto and TPTB. Something needs to be done about it.
