David vs Monsanto 6

Imagine that a storm blows across your garden and that now, genetically-manipulated seeds are in your crops. A multi-national corporation pays you a visit, demands that you surrender your crops – and then sues you for $200 000 for the illegal use of patented, GM seeds. In this definitive David and Goliath battle, one farmer stands up against a massive multinational, and their right to claim ownership to a living organism.

  1. Excellent Video. We always knew thought that Greed could eventually kill off mankind. How could governments be so careless and ignorant to permit such GMO Seed patent!? Courts of Human Rights need to overturn this patent. We love you David and more power to you. I think that they could keep their patent if a Shakespearean Shylock’s law (as in The Merchant of Venice) could be applied as in ‘pound of flesh but not one drop of blood’. GMO all they like but cross contaminate one non GMO farmer’s crop at their peril!

  2. Scary and true. My son died from aml leukemia from exposure to benzene while working on asphalt in a lab. Those toxic fumes changed his blood chemistry along with some other irritantts. His job as civil engineer meant exposure to dangerous chemicals. I wonder how many more civil engineers were poisoned and transformed like my son. Who gets leukemia at 32years old?
