I don't normally get excited over petitions or anything of that sort, but this one....the audacity.
It's unbelievable, but Monsanto and Co. are at it again.
These profit-hungry biotech companies have found a way to gain exclusive control over the seeds of life – the source of our food. They're trying to patent away varieties of our everyday vegetables and fruits like cucumber, broccoli and melons, virtually forcing growers to pay them for seed and risk being sued if they don't.
But we can stop them from buying up Mother Earth. Companies like Monsanto have found loopholes in European law to have exclusive rights over conventional seeds, so we just need to close them shut before they set a dangerous global precedent.
And to do that, we need key countries like Germany, France and the Netherlands -- where opposition is already growing -- to call for a vote to stop Monsanto's greedy plans. The Avaaz community has shifted governments before, and we can do it again. Many farmers and politicians are already against this -- we just need to bring in people power
to pressure these countries to keep Monsanto's hands off our food. Sign now and share with everyone to help build the biggest food defense call ever.Sign petition here
Dear ones, if you have a moment please do sign this. With the way the world has been lately, companies are taking more and more and selling back to us what was rightfully ours. Let them know that you aren't cool with it. Sign petition here
Besides that, I hurt my hip and have been seeing a chiropractor. I haven't been doing much of anything lately sadly. And, it's still snowy out there, but it is starting to melt.
Later my friends,
