Cassi Creek: Today was a day of international protest against Monsanto. The corporation has long been involved with hybridization of food plants and has a leading position in the GMO market place. Among other things, Monsanto has moved to patent some genetic material that they have incorporated into much of the seed grains now sold.
To further protect their position and profits they introduced the Monsanto Protection Act. This gift from a greedy and corrupt Congress is on par with the Citizens United legislation.
As for me, I remember Monsanto as being among the chemical companies that presented so many VietNam veterans with the gift of Agent Orange.
