Francesco Del Re of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) should be fired .
The Haitian farmers do not need to become 'dependent' on Monsanto.
"One USAID/WINNER staffperson passed on an internal document to the journalists. “Preliminary Report on the seed donation of hybrid maize and vegetable seeds from MONSANTO” revealing USAID/WINNER’s intent.

This entire situation is outrageous !
