5 Million Farmers Sue Monsanto for $7.7 Billion
Launching a lawsuit against the very company that is responsible for a farmer suicide every 30 minutes, 5 million farmers are now suing Monsanto for as much as 6.2 billion euros (around 7.7 billion US dollars). The reason? As with many other cases, such as the ones that led certain farming regions to be known as the ‘suicide belt’, Monsanto has been reportedly taxing the farmers to financial shambles with ridiculous royalty charges. The farmers state that Monsanto has been unfairly gathering exorbitant profits each year on a global scale from “renewal” seed harvests, which are crops planted using seed from the previous year’s harvest.
The practice of using renewal seeds dates back to ancient times, but Monsanto seeks to collect massive royalties and put an end to the practice. Why? Because Monsanto owns the very patent to the genetically modified seed, and is charging the farmers not only for the original crops, but the later harvests as well. Eventually, the royalties compound and many farmers begin to struggle with even keeping their farm afloat. It is for this reason that India slammed Monsanto with groundbreaking ‘biopiracy’ charges in an effort to stop Monsanto from ‘patenting life’.

Mystery Malady Kills More Bees, Heightening Worry on Farms
Is it really a question any longer who's responsible for the loss of butterflies and bees? Next it'll be us.
Think about when people really began to become more sickly and heavier. 1990's. 1987 was the first implantation of Monsanto's GMO's. Who will be the brave ones and fight this huge mega empire that now has spoiled the majority of ours and the worlds crops?
Now that President Obama has hired Michael Taylor as senior adviser to the commissioner of the FDA stopping the monsters will be an impossible task.
Folks, it just keeps getting more insane.Michael Taylor was just appointed senior adviser to the commissioner of the FDA. This is the same man that was in charge of FDA policy when GMO’s were allowed into the US food supply without undergoing a single test to determine their safety. He “had been Monsanto’s attorney before becoming policy chief at the FDA [and then] he became Monsanto’s Vice President and chief lobbyist. This month [he] became the senior adviser to the commissioner of the FDA. He is now America’s food safety czar. This is no joke.”
