GMO : Monsanto increases its repression
Call for an increased resistance

On the 26th of November, the Monsanto Corporation (Round-Up, Agent Orange, Terminator) seized the bank accounts of the Confederation Paysanne, France's second largest agriculture trade union.

This decision follows a judgment after the neutralization, in 1998, of open-air cultivations of GM maize and soya.

The Confederation Paysanne is being attacked, even though this action was aimed at avoiding genetic pollution and the patenting of the living by multinational corporations.

« Les Amis de la Confederation paysanne » (Friends of the the Confederation paysanne) denounce this repression.
