|MONSANTO vs FARMERS
This short film (under 15 mins)
is a work-in-progress by Mathieu
Asselin about a group of farmers in
Indiana who have been falsely
accused of using Monsanto's GMO
seeds and how they were dragged
through the courts, losing roughly
half a million dollars each defending
themselves, usually by settling out
of court, where no party was assigned
blame, as this was the least expensive
alternative for small farmers without
the infinite pockets of Monsanto, and
without Monsanto's merciless agenda
to destroy small farmers.
In the aftermath of their outrageous
ordeals, Dave Runyon, Troy Roush and
Moe Parr (a seed cleaner who was sued
by Monsanto for "encouraging GM
soybean farmers to save their seed")
have traveled the world speaking out
publicly about Monsanto's reckless,
domineering business practices.
The current US Administration appears
to be the most pro-Monsanto that we
have seen so far. The Senate passed
HR 933 that contains the "Monsanto
Protection Act" 73 to 26.
Of the 26 who voted against it, 25 were
Republicans. One Democrat voted against it.
To learn more about the work of Mathieu
Asselin to document the century-long
history of the unconscionably rapacious
St. Louis, Missouri-based Monsanto
corporation, makers of the birth defect-
causing Agent Orange, now-banned
industrial coolants known as PCBs, the
carcinogenic Dioxin (the most toxic man-
made chemical) and Genetically-Modified
