Free Our Farmers

This just hit my inbox from Fresh, an indie film by ana Sophia joanes.

The AP just uncovered a series of confidential commercial licensing agreements that give around 200 smaller companies the right to insert Monsanto's genes (resistant to Monsanto's Roundup herbicide) into their corn and soybean plans.  These agreements outline the various practices that Monsanto employs to block out competition in the seed industry, compromising any choice that small farmers might have in the decision not to grow GMO plants.  
Now, more than ever, we need to make sure the Department of Justice recognizes that we won't stand for this any longer.  Please sign the petition and spread the word to your friends and family to do the same.

You can read the AP article here.

Sign the petition at the Fresh website.
