‘Monsanto Protection Act’ might be repealed in Senate

The so-called Monsanto Protection Act signed into law earlier this year caused such an outrage that people around the world are planning to protest the biotech company later this month. Now a United States senator is expected to try and repeal that law.

According to the Huffington Post, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Oregon) plans to introduce an amendment in Washington that would repeal Section 735 from the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act of 2013, a provision that has put St. Louis, Missouri-based Monsanto in the sights of environmentalists around the world.

Deep within the nearly 600-page spending bill, Section 735 includes language that lets biotech companies that experiment with genetically-engineered and genetically-modified crops test and sell lab-made products even if legal action is taken against them.

Bump! Monsanto is just another wing of this fascist Admin.

Hope those on the Left who don't like GMOs will see that.

The greed is inexcusable

As though there were some lack of demand for their product (food), Monsanto still feels the need to entrench their power by paying for bespoke legislation, international promotion, protection and bullying at taxpayer expense.

Is Monsanto doing that badly? Do they really need to bully private citizen gardeners in Europe from planting squash with their own seeds? Is all this even a faint ghost of actual necessity? Is Monsanto seriously threatened by a 10x10 plot of tomatoes?

You really need look under a lot of rocks to find these "special" people who will willingly devote their lives to the calcification of corporate power structures. Its all just gratuitous, grasping, and disgusting.

This shows how deep the ties are

between Monsanto and the administration. Everyone should be outraged!
