A French court ruled that a controversial US biotech company Monsanto is guilty of unintentional chemical poisoning of a French farmer. The verdict sets a French precedent for pesticide-poisoning and more cases are expected to follow.

ok... I don't have time to go through all of these and I hope many who have posted know about Monsanto, its history, and its affiliates. The chemical compound they use in pesticides is from caterpillar guts and 1 of three strains, closest related to the strain of Anthrax. Their history involves Agent Orange where they manufactured the chemical for military use (claiming they are not responsible yet they did make the chemical). If you read their site and have any smarts you will see they spend most their space telling farmers what they want to hear by promising quality of goods, yet show very very very little of what chemicals they actually use, the definition of those chemicals, process of, use of, or of the detail of the technology used to do it. If a farmer uses their gene manipulated seeds (made to withstand the harmful chemical compound of the pesticide) and their crop pollunates to a natrual organic crop next door, that organic crop will die because its seeds are not gene manipulated to withstand the chemical compound. Of all their lawsuits, the biggest and first ones against them were shortened by them paying farmers large amounts of money to shut them up and avoid lengthy trial. Monsanto is a bad company and it doesn't take a genius to see it. You can use the excuse that its to help quicken the food production for populated planet, but organic seeds do the same thing... there is absolutely no reason for them to chemically manipulate seeds and enforce their uses, other then to cause illnesses in humanity (fact based on long exposer of chemicals) and greed of money.
Monsanto's Moses Mercado, Obama's appointee as senior advisor to the FDA (who also is a lobbyist for the Carlyle Group). Um...maybe that position should be filled by a dietitian so that maybe mass produced foods wouldn't leave us open to so many health problems due to malnutrition? (FDA daily allowances for vitamins are apallingly short). OH I SEE...Enter stage left a pharmaceutical lobbyist for such a prominent position. Ok, RT News is still mass media, for those innocent bystanders out there, google: the Hegelian doctrine.the anvil of Exploitative "Free Market" is how the oligarchy of this current period in history will sell to the masses the hammer of "communism" the whole thing is a charade. If you don't believe me, read Sorros's explanation of "1/2 truths" in many of his eloquent speeches. Flag me if you want, only know that there's only One Star in my flag and the stripes would be a bar code torn in half!
Russia just doesnt call them GMos. Russians are dumb they think most farmers still use GMOs. every country has modified vegetables. Most farmers don't use them here in America. More farmers are and have been turning them down. You little hippies here are fanatics. Go fkn live life. I hate vegetarians because you have to hear them complain about freakin everything. fk.
Ghandi stated, "The best way to bring down the tyrants is to not support them." Boycott is the way to bring down Monsanto, they must be gone from the Earth forever!!! They care nothing about life and this planet. How intelligent or morally responsible can one call an organization/company that commits blatant atrocities against human life and all of nature? Fact: 1, GMO foods do not increase crop yields. 2, Roundup poisons the soil for many years. 3, Cross pollination of natural crops by genetically engineered ones may be with us forever.To everyone with a patch of soil and water, please, dig up that worthless and poisonous lawn and plant traditional heirloom food. The best way to insure you have a healthy food source is to grow (organically of course) as much as you can. Trade what you have in excess with others who have organic gardens. Find natural seeds and keep those strains going by saving seeds. You will feel better, the planet will reward you with better tasting and heathy foods.To the commercial farmers out there, please do your homework and study up on this issue, Monsanto is lying to you at every turn. They only care for profit and are using you! Go organic and heirloom, diversify your crops and provided natural patches for wildlife and the benificial insects. Work with nature, not against it. Your farms can be far more profitable and you will leave something better for future generations.Boyc ott, boycott, boycott!!!!!!!
from agent orange to hormones to pesticides, monsanto has proven many times over that they do not, in any way, benefit mankind, and are a threat to the entire planet, its ecosystems and inhabitants. they must be shut down and their leaders be held accountable for ruining the only place we know in the universe that contains and supports life
Monsanto, and the other colaborating Monopoly companies who are controlling life itself, must and will be shut down. Those who are their political puppets will feel the wrath, as more and more people are becoming tuned into the poisoning, and attempt to controll everything food related. Isn't it ironic that the same company who is one of, if not the world's biggest poison producer, is also in control of a large portion of the world's food production. As more countries shut the door on these and the pharmasutical drug dealers, their underhanded actions and following payoffs and cover ups will be revealed. I wouldn't want to be working for Monsanto right now.
Yaaay! Anything that hurts Monsanto pleases me. That is one f- off evil mega-company... corrupt, brutal, in bed with the FDA, and responsible for so much poisoning, toxic dumping and strong-arm tactics on little people suffering worldwide. RT won't let me use the expletives I want to about them... :(
Monsanto is a blood-sucking terror organization! Don't forget to boycott
Coke Zero/Light and all other stuff as well that includes the former chemical weapon called aspartame. Let everybody know that they're
drinking poison! Time for justice for the injured ones all around the world including tens of thousands of US farmer and millions of Vietnamese!
Monsanto is a parasite feeding on humanity. It is a shame some chemical company couldn't develop a parasite spray for these people.The French farmers/Bee Keepers, have been protesting for years and the French gov't, as well as the UK have known for a long, long time what this stuff is about. As always, the company, their technicians, the politicians, have all just been stalling as long as they possibly could, to allow these litigation cases to die off.Hey, if your family and friends are not affected that's alright, eh Monsanto?PS: Stay out of India for a bit, their farmers are really angry.
At least it happens, sometimes, that some people take decisions that make sense in my country
