MONSANTO vs THE FAMILY FARMER | Hit Hard

Monsanto vs the Family Farmer | Hit Hard. In several legal cases involving Monsanto vs the Family Farmer, the Family Farmer is getting hit hard. It is difficult for the average farmer to go against the big pockets of Monsanto and the lot.

Here is a 2014 Australian Case. (See below for conclusion)

Marsh lost the lawsuit in a May 2014 ruling from the Supreme Court of Western Australia and was ordered instead to pay court costs of about $804,000. He appealed the decision to the West Australian court of appeal but in September, the court instead ruled in favor of Baxter.

Today, after six years of legal wrangling, the High Court rejected Marsh’s bid for leave to appeal against that ruling.

“I will try and hang onto our farm, it is our business and we will try and do the best we can,” Marsh said. “I think that this case has highlighted that more than ever and issues about food and its safety and how we produce it.”

This case highlights the challenges facing organic farmers whose crops are contaminated by GMOs, Ken Roseboro, editor of The Organic & Non-GMO Report, said.

“They suffer economic losses and have no recourse to regain those losses and such contamination can ruin their organic certification and make potential buyers leery of buying their crops,” Roseboro told EcoWatch. “The situation is very unjust and biotech/pesticide companies should be held liable for their contaminating GMOs. This case also shows that so-called coexistence of GMOs and organics is very difficult, if not impossible, to achieve when there is no liability on the GMO producers or companies.”

Incidentally, Monsanto admitted last year that it financially supported Baxter’s legal defense.

So, in this case ..the farmer buys the seed knowing they will have Monsanto support legally if things get dicey. So, in this case like many others seeds have blown over to the Organic land and the farmer then loses his accreditation because of Monsanto seeds blew onto his land. Result, his land is disqualified Organically. In this case 70% of the land was tainted. So, in the case above he was presented charges over 800,000 dollars. Ouch

It appears that agribusinesses funneled large sums of money to the area’s lawmakers to ensure passage of the 2013 legislation. According to the Statesmen Journal, companies such as Monsanto, Novartis and Syngenta contributed at least $127,745 in 2013 to legislators’ campaign committees, the two Republican caucus political action committees, and three other PACs that contribute to candidates.

Dozens of people recently testified at a hearing on HB 4122, which would repeal the law.

“We lose money when we have a GMO contamination event, which I’ve had happen twice,” Don Tipping, an organic seed grower from Williams, said at the hearing. “We lost money directly, as have other growers.”

So there, the land is getting polluted, the Organic Farmers are on their own, Monsanto wins again.

How did this happen. We have the most expensive Health System the World. We are one of the sickest nations in the World. We are authorizing Monsanto to set up a Territory of Destruction here in the U.S.A., while other wiser countries have kicked them out.  The laws interpreted by those who receive incredible donations to systematically disrupt a budding Organic recovery.

IS ORGANIC FOOD WORTH IT?

THE POSITIVE.  We do have a nation who is increasingly asking for Organic food, healthy food. As difficult as it is to get the truth, the people understand enough to know it is bad. It is bad. We have been HIT HARD.
