Farmers Sue Monsanto

Action would prohibit biotech giant from suing organic farmers and seed growers if contaminated by Roundup Ready genes. On behalf of 60 family farmers, seed businesses and organic agricultural organizations, the Public Patent Foundation (PUBPAT) filed suit against Monsanto, challenging the chemical giant’s patents on GMO seed. The plaintiffs were forced to sue preemptively to protect themselves from being accused of patent infringement should their crops ever become contaminated by Monsanto’s GMOseed. Go here to ask your legislators to make labeling of GMO food mandatory.
