Who governs us?. Our elected representatives or multi national corporations ?
I have just heard the most unbelievable story on BBC radio 4.
A farmer in the USA or Canada, I'm not sure which was growing a crop,corn I think, from GM seed supplied by Monsanto. When the crop was harvested and being transported from the field some of the corn blew into a neighbouring farmers field. This farmer did not grow GM crops but the GM seed which landed in his field germinated and grew along with his own crops.
Monsanto then sued the farmer for growing their GM crop with out a licence. It has taken him years and no doubt considerable expense to have a court finally reject Monsanto's claim.
The world has gone mad.
If that farmer was growing "organic" he would have been the one suing, for contamination/loss of the "organic" label.
Do you have the right to let your chickens graze your neighbor's lawn, or harvest their crops,or even mow their lawn? You can only trim their invasive trees/bushes/vines to the property line.......
