Monsanto Should Not Receive the Nobel Prize for Agriculture!


monsantolandYep, it seems that people are getting rewarded for ruining agriculture!

Taken from the Sum of Us call to action:-

In an obscene development, a Monsanto executive is winning this year’s “Nobel Prize of agriculture” — the prestigious World Food Prize — for creating GMOs.Receiving it legitimizes the sort of rampant genetic modification Monsanto pioneered, and helps validate a ruthless business model that impoverishes farmers and monopolizes our food.

If that wasn’t baffling enough, the founder of Syngenta, the same biotech giant joining Bayer in suing Europe to keep selling bee-killing pesticides, will also win the prize — and with it, a share of the $250,000 prize money. We cannot allow this prize to legitimize frankenfoods and bee killers. The ceremony is in less than two weeks, so we need to act now.

If you feel this should not be the case, please go to Sum of Us and sign their petition – don’t forget to spread the word afterwards too!
