GMOs, which were introduced by Monsanto for human and animal consumption in 2011, not only carry harmful health effects such as organ damage, infertility, auto-immune conditions, allergies and increased cancer risks determined through scientific studies, but also cause environmental set backs including soil infertility, habitat destruction, mono-cropping, loss of biodiversity and is a contributing factor to beehive collapse as proven scientifically. GMO crops are also effecting the “peasant farmers’ livelihood” from cross-pollination with traditional crops.

According to the March Against Monsanto’s press release, “in India, more than 250,000 farmers have committed suicide after Monsanto’s Bt cotton seeds did not perform as promised.” Many other farmers in various countries are also going through similar life-changing situations as seed patenting and legal actions on the part of Monsanto and other big-agriculture interested companies are ridding farmers of their rights.

And on May 24, the world will make their voices heard in the fight against biotechnology and, instead, strive to make agro-ecology the solution.
