Monsanto and other large multi-national companies need to be reined in. They will soon control all the seeds of the world if we continue sleeping while they steal seeds in the night. They have no ethics, no morals and no sense of humanity. I would support Mexican farmers in their fight to keep their agriculture GM free, but I am in Australia and not sure what I can do from here. We face the same threat here, but we are better equipped and informed and wealthier, and even we cannot seem to sway governments away from the enticements that these mulit-national companies offer for them to turn a blind eye.. Surely the people of the United States of America will not stand by and watch a company that calls their country home, stomp all over sustainable agricultural development world wide, and especially in one of their near neighbour countries and exploit the poorer, less dastardlypeople of the local Mexican farming community.
