  • The courts are finally standing up for the farmers and against Monsanto. In a recent ruling,

farmers are now allowed to sue Monsanto for contamination of their fields. It was a partial victory,

as Monsanto “promised” repeatedly that they would not sue the farmers if their GMO’s drifted

into farmers fields.

  • Say good bye to organic sugar beets? The US sugar beet industry decided to

go 100% GMO. Illinois illegally destroys bees.

  • Colbert gives his views on Monsanto’s GMO wheat.

Appeals Court Binds Monsanto to Promise Not to Sue Organic Farmers,   http://ecowatch.com/2013/court-binds-monsanto-promise-not-sue-organic-farmers/

Partial court victory for organic farmers against Monsanto. Ruling allows organic farmers to sue Monsanto for unwanted contamination.

“Today’s ruling may give farmers a toehold in courts regarding the unwanted contamination of their crops,

but it does not protect our food supply from the continued proliferation of Monsanto’s flawed technology,”

said Dave Murphy, founder and executive director of Food Democracy Now!, a co-plaintiff in the lawsuit.
