All your seed belongs to us

15 December 2009

Although this video is aimed at North of the Border consumers, it is worth considering that Montsanto corn is being grown in Mexico, and is contaminating native stocks.  Whether patent law, as interpreted in the Canadian courts (who ruled that  cross pollination of a farmer’s own seed supply with Montansanto-owned genetic stock — even if unintentional — gave Montsanto a right to the crop) would apply in Mexico is uncertain.  However, NAFTA regulations would seem to give Montsanto the edge over the independent Mexican farmer.

Esther (From Xico) has more on the threat Montsanto represents, not just to national sovereignty, but to our food supply itself.
