5 Million Farmers Sue Monsanto for $7.7 Billion

5 Million Farmers Sue Monsanto for $7.7 Billion | Save GMO | Scoop.it

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. - See more at: http://www.whydontyoutrythis.com/2013/03/5-million-farmers-sue-monsanto-for-7-billion.html#sthash.UWwAJOFK.dpuf

Fine with me if Monsanto does not personally raise the children and negletes to feed water and harvest them ...They should not be allowed to claim any type of ownership after the seed is bought and cared for by farmers. Though I don't want these farmer's products and if they are there I want them all labeled. NO patents on life period! If it can breed you only own what breeds on your own land by your own hand.
