Fight GMO (Genetically Modified Organism)

IRT News Team Posted on 9:55 pm August 4, 2011 A must-see video, a farmer investigates the harsh reality of growing GM crops in the US 10 years after their introduction. A story emerges of:

Roundup-resistant weeds that have to be hand-weeded lost markets because of GM contamination  removal of farmers’ rights to save even non-GM seed huge price hikes of non-GM seed to match GM seed prices complete removal of choice in seeds and chemicals once a region’s farmers have gone down the GM route.

Farmer to Farmer: The devastating impact of GM crops

Fight Against GMO
The Institute for Responsible Technology is a world leader in educating  policy makers and the public about genetically modified (GM) foods and  crops. They investigate and report their risks and impact on health,  environment, the economy, and agriculture, as well as the problems  associated with current research, regulation, corporate practices, and  reporting.

David Versus Monsanto
Imagine that a storm blows across your garden and that now, genetically-manipulated seeds are in your crops. A multi-national corporation pay you a visit, demand that you surrender your crops - and then sue you for $200 000 for the illegal use of patented, GM seeds. In this definitive David and Goliath battle, one farmer stands up against a massive multinational, and their right to claim ownership to a living organism.
