We might as well be putting skeletons on our foods as a warning to those who dare to cook and eat it.
It’s unbelievable, but Monsanto and Co. are at it again. These profit-hungry biotech companies have found a way to exclusively ‘own’ something that freely belongs to us all -- our food! They’re trying to patent away our everyday vegetables and fruits like cucumber, broccoli and melons, forcing growers to pay them and risk being sued if they don’t.
But we can stop them from buying up Mother Earth. Companies like Monsanto have found loopholes in European law to get away with this, so we just need to close them shut before they set a dangerous global precedent. And to do that, we need key countries like Germany, France and the Netherlands -- where opposition is already growing -- to call for a vote to stop Monsanto’s plans. The Avaaz community has shifted governments before, and we can do it again.
Many farmers and politicians are already against this -- we just need to bring in people power to pressure these countries to keep Monsanto’s hands off our food. Sign now and share with everyone to help build the biggest food defense call ever.
Excuse me, for knocking on the Monsanto thing so much but I feel that we are in "code orange" (forget the pun). The EU is one of the last safe food regions in the world. America is about over and has anyone tasted some of these melons? I swear, I ate a melon that was grown in Mexico that tasted like chemicals.
This company is literally starving the people in this world and causing cancer, fertility problems, and more. Why can't we stand up and fight anymore? Is our government that corrupt?
Please sign this petition and any that you see on this issue...NEVER STOP UNTIL WE CAN STOP IT.
