BREAKING: Monsanto Slapped With A $7.7 Billion Lawsuit By 5 Million Farmers!!
Launching a lawsuit against the very company that is responsible for a farmer suicide every 30 minutes, 5 million farmers are now suing Monsanto for as much as 6.2 billion euros (around 7.7 billion US dollars). The reason? As with many other cases, such as the ones that led certain farming regions to be known as the ‘suicide belt’, Monsanto has been reportedly taxing the farmers to financial shambles with ridiculous royalty charges. The farmers state that Monsanto has been unfairly gathering exorbitant profits each year on a global scale from “renewal” seed harvests, which are crops planted using seed from the previous year’s harvest.

The practice of using renewal seeds dates back to ancient times, but Monsanto seeks to collect massive royalties and put an end to the practice. Why? Because Monsanto owns the very patent to the genetically modified seed, and is charging the farmers not only for the original crops, but the later harvests as well. Eventually, the royalties compound and many farmers begin to struggle with even keeping their farm afloat. It is for this reason that India slammed Monsanto with groundbreaking ‘bio-piracy’ charges in an effort to stop Monsanto from ‘patenting life’.

Monsanto says seeds and their offspring cannot be saved and replanted without compensation.

Bowman grows corn, wheat and soybeans on his property in Sanborn, Indiana, about 100 miles from Indianapolis. He used the patented soybeans for his main spring crop, but went to a local grain elevator and purchased so-called commodity seeds for a riskier, late-season crop.

Such soybeans are typically used for feed livestock and for milling, but not for replanting.

But Bowman figured since Monsanto dominated the market, most of those elevator seeds would be of the genetically modified kind and cheaper. He says there were no restrictions on how he used the mixed-variety commodity seeds, which he did for eight consecutive fall-season crops.

All the farmers across this great nation should show the govt who is the boss and to NOT plant soybeans for 2 years and see how the GOVT reacts.
