Thanks Simone.
This has always been the dark side of the GM Debate. Once farmers had independence but little productive capacity.
So they make a pact with the devil, in this case Monsanto, from whom there is no escape. Tragically there is no going back to the old simple, ( granted harsh ) days, but if given a choice then what would the farmers choose.

Thank you Simone for promoting this petition. I sent a video around about a year ago on this very thing. It is beyond heartbreaking it is criminal! I most certainly signed and let others know. This Monsanto is the curse of the Earth.

A person commits suicide, only when, no hope for the future, exists.
Actually, I wonder about any person, who would work for this company. Morals are non-existant and that's the way the conservtives want it.

The middle and lower classes should become so needy for money, in order to live, that they will be willing to take any job offered.
Never before, have I been a consciracy theorist, but the conditions existing today, smack of it.

I signed feeling very disgusted with Monsanto's criminal record. I signed with this comment:
Monsanto should come clean, these etrocities have to stop. We had all this before, mass murderers were hanged. But I guess, not in the USA, money, money. Disgusting, how can anybody use poor people to make millions and then get them to take the poison they were sold at rediculous prices in the first place. I can only say f...Monsanto, f...USA and that is why the US is going down. Money, money, thank David for your demise. Hope Wong will do a better job.

Thank you Simone. I signed a few days ago, #107. I remember when Dandelion sent the video last year. I believed in my mind I signed this a year ago. I actually questioned my sanity and looked at the Calender!

Thank you Dandelion for your post and forward. It is truly a BLESSING as I lost your news earlier.
10,000 signatures is a hard pill to swallow.

Mosanto isn't only bad for humanity as a whole, but also for the individual farmers forced -by society- to work with this money-making structure.

"10,000 signatures is a hard pill to swallow" - no, sadly those in 'power' are so busy lining their own pockets they haven't got time to 'swallow' anything! Yes, "Monsanto is the curse of the Earth" but when you've got the US of A 'in your pocket', you can do whatever you like! How very, very sad for those poor people - at least in the 'old days' they had their selfrespect!
