Succesvolle blokkade van Monsanto bij Bergschenhoek

ImageOn May 17 2010 about 40 persons of the action group 'Roundup Monsanto' blocked both gates of the Monsanto seed company in Bergschenhoek (near Rotterdam). 'Roundup Monsanto' wants Monsanto to back out of the seed market, and demand an end to patents on seeds and living organisms.

Greenwash alert: “Monsanto Helps Farmers…”

monsantoskull“Monsanto Helps Farmers Plant the Seed to Grow Their Local Communities”. The title of this recent press release from Monsanto is a true creative piece of greenwash. At this pesticide- and seed company (with a 1 billion dollars profit in 2010) US farmers can win 2,500 dollars to set up something nice for their community. To save something in this region that has first been demolished by large scale agro industry, including Monsanto itself. By the way, small farmers have been excluded from this generous project. The ‘planting of seeds’, as this project is called, must obviously be take figuratively, because for the real seeds you still have to pay Monsanto a lot of money.
