    I'm furious about my squandered nation.

    Quote from a high-level Monsanto spokesman: "We want to control the world's food supply."

    The long-awaited film by French filmmaker Marie-Monique Robin is now available in the US!

    Go to Seeds Of Deception and you will get further information at the Institute for Responsible Technology.

    The moment has come when we might finally be able to deliver a deadly blow to the biotech industry. The giant Monsanto corporation is in the lead when it comes to selling and making huge profits from GMO seeds, pesticides and fertilizers.

    These are toxic products that are right now in the process of ruining the earth's ecosystems and which are also in the food we eat, since we are the unknowing guinea pigs for this catastrophic experiment, callously engineered by the biotech companies, GM food sold without proper labeling. GM cultures are replacing biological and small-scale farming by giant monocultures of genetically modified crops that have clearly verified health hazards � from cancer to skin diseases.

    Only through infiltration by Monsanto high-level employees of agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has this gigantic corporation managed to make their way unhindered to an already well-on-the-way take-over of the world's agriculture.

    While the biotech corporations make billions, small farmers are forced to leave their land, move to city slums where they slowly starve to death with their families or outright commit suicide when they are so deeply in debt to these biotech sharks that they see no way out of their misery.

    The moment for action has arrived. Movements are afoot in the world, and not just in India, such as Letter From Langdon: Talking Seeds and Freedom at Mark Twain State Park
