 'March Against Monstant Everywhere - Just Say NO to GMO'

 
    
  
    
 One woman has come to stand for GMOs. To some extent she's right - it's what companies like Monsanto can do with GM to control markets that is
   
 really the problem. And I think there is still some doubt about RoundUp - which is why it is banned as a precautionary measure in some countries
and why Monsanto hid some of their results before putting it on the market. And it's Bayer and Syngenta who make most of the bee-killing neonicitinoids - but Bayer and Monsanto are now combining.  
    
 So while a blanket ban on GN makes no scientific sense, GM needs to be controlled and companies like Monsanto certainly do 

 Jim McNulty, co-founder of GEN (Genetic Engineering Network), speaks on the dangers of pesticides and the corruption related to them
