2 Million People In 52 Countries March Against Monsanto

Monsanto’s Arguments Debunked

2 million people in 52 countries protested against Monsanto today. (Pictures here.)

In response to the protest, Monsanto’s spokesperson said:

Among the challenges facing agriculture are producing food for our growing population and reducing agriculture’s footprint on the environment. While we respect each individual’s right to express their point of view on these topics, we believe we are making a contribution to improving agriculture by helping farmers produce more from their land while conserving natural resources such as water and energy.

Is this true?

The Independent noted in 2008:

Genetic modification actually cuts the productivity of crops, an authoritative new study shows, undermining repeated claims that a switch to the controversial technology is needed to solve the growing world food crisis.

The study – carried out over the past three years at the University of Kansas in the US grain belt – has found that GM soya produces about 10 per cent less food than its conventional equivalent, contradicting assertions by advocates of the technology that it increases yields.

That was ridiculous. Pesticides, herbicides and anti fungal cocktail are killing honeybees, and making the entire food chain consume those toxins. If they were really concerned, they would go organic.
If crops were alternated with hemp that could be plowed into the soil, you end up with ta-da: sustainable farming.
If you do the research, GMO crops drizzled with Roundup produce less yield than conventional crops.
I fail to see the point in any of this, less Monsatano making billions off of poisoning people in the US.
Europe is doing the right thing by telling them to go ğck themselves.

Well, Monsatano didn't exactly give up. Just changing tactics.

Quote:Owing to the higher prices of genetically unmodified soy and their reduced availability, Suomen Rehu and Raisio have introduced genetically modified (GM) soy into their feed factories in Turku this spring. Raisio’s feed factory also introduced GM soy this spring into their pig and poultry feed.

Genetically modified soybeans imported into Finland has remained at 15 per cent. The largest feed manufacturers have so far avoided using it.
