Well people.

Some of you might remember my other thread.

300.000 Organic Farmers Sue Monsanto In Federal Court.

Well they lost!

And it´s a freaking shame!!

Judgde Naomi Buchwald dismissed the case in Federal Court on the 24th of february.


On February 24, Judge Naomi Buchwald handed down her ruling on a motion to dismiss in the case of Organic Seed Growers and Trade Assn et al v. Monsanto after hearing oral argument on January 31st in Federal District Court in Manhattan. Her ruling to dismiss the case brought against Monsanto on behalf of organic farmers, seed growers and agricultural organizations representing farmers and citizens was met with great disappointment by the plaintiffs.


Further Info On The Ruling And Link To News Article

Judge´s Ruling

I came across a letter on a site, that i DID NOT write, but i felt was so on-point and well said i needed to share this with ATS.

I hope every single (sane) person agrees with this letter.


This is an open (hearted) letter to the more than 300,000 organic farmers, seed growers, and members of farming and agricultural organizations (collectively “OSGTA”) challenging Monsanto’s patents on genetically modified seed, who today, after suffering through months of deliberation, tediousness and preparation, had their case against Monsanto dismissed by Judge Naomi Buchwald in Federal District Court in Manhattan.


The letter itself.


Dear Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association,


Today we also heard the bad news. We read of your case being thrown out by Judge Naomi Buchwald. We know the system is broken. And we know that you are trying, however desperately, to stitch a portion of democracy and justice back together again, with us. So, really, this is our case—sane America’s lawsuit. We are writing today to let you know that we feel the pain of today’s decision. We too are saddened and outraged. But our sadness will not last long as we hope yours too will lift soon, with your passion reinvigorated. Far from disengage and extinguish our hope, the decision by Judge Buchwald bolsters our determination, our urgency to do everything in our power to dismantle the Biotech monster machine.


With each blow to our justice, to our health, to our peace of mind, to our children’s future, we will grow stronger, more united, and determined. And with each subsequent act of corruption we will come thundering back to take back our lives, our wealth, which we believe can still be free. Count on it. It’s a promise from all of us to you, fellow farmers. And it’s our promise to Monsanto, the soulless politicians who enable them, and to all Big Business Bullies.


Hope you took the time to read this and you enjoyed it as much as i did.

People ARE waking up.

GMO's are bad.

I don't see how anybody, who has the choice, willingly favors GMO over natural food.

There's absolutely NO NEED to go GMO.

For the people that are interested (all of you should be btw)

This was already posted but none the less it is sad to see the farmers case dropped like this. I don't know the full details but I'm going to assume America has the best legal system money can buy.

I did a search and just did it again.

Nothing comes up except for my own threads?

Yeah that pretty much sums it up.

I'll bet the bank account of Judge Buchwald is a lot fatter than it was before this case was brought to her bench.

The fact that Monsanto doesn't serve GMO foods in its own corporate headquarter's cafeteria says it all.

thanks for finding the thread.

did not notice.

since my thread also revolves around the letter and (possibly) signing the petition, i think it warrents a stay.

however that's just me.
