The fight against Monsanto has heated up like never before, especially with the recent March Against Monsanto and other campaigns that have been rooted in similar activism. But the simple reality is that it doesn’t take a PHD to realize how Monsanto’s genetic manipulation of the food supply is an assault on the health of the world — an experiment to which we do not know the full extent of the damage. Instead, as 11-year-old Birke Baehr shows us, it simply takes a bit of research.

Stop allowing your kids to be manufactured, grow your own!
You might not be able to take them out of the system, but don't just hand them over and hope they turn out alright. Be a parent and a teacher and make a remarkable human capable of critical and unique thinking, rather than a mass produced drone aiming to be a celebrity.

While I agree with the message. (I despise Monsanto and everything they stand for)
I disagree with using children in such a way.
11 year old kids can be relatively intelligent. But, they lack the experience and context required to develop informed opinions of such things.
In a nut shell, he is a parrot taught to regurgitate what he has been told.
That is my opinion of this. Could I be wrong? Sure, but I don't think so.
Their intentions may be in the right place, but using kids makes them no better than Monsanto.

The kid is smart beyond his years, his parents should be proud.
"Wir machen keine Lobbyarbeit mehr für den Anbau in Europa"
roughly translated by my skills to torture google.translate:
"We will not continue to lobby for the cultivation of genetically modified seeds in Europe".
