Farmers v. Monsanto
We have been following the Farmers v. Monsanto issue close and were heartened to see this in our inbox yesterday from fooddemocracynow.org:
“On January 31, 2012, 55 farmers and plaintiffs traveled to Manhattan to hear oral
arguments regarding Monsanto’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit, Organic Seed Growers
and Trade Association (OSGATA) vs. Monsanto.
At the heart of the lawsuit is the threat that family farmers face due to genetic trespass on their fields as a result of Monsanto’s genetically modified (GMO) seed and the aggressive enforcement of the biotech seed and chemical giant’s alleged patent rights.
In court, Federal Judge Naomi Buchwald declared that she would rule on the motion to dismiss the trial or move forward in the next 60 days or by March 31st. If you want to support America’s family farmers, sign the letter to say, “I Stand with Farmers vs. Monsanto!” ”
