Haitian Farmers Commit to Burning Monsanto Hybrid Seeds

Beverly Bell, Truthout: "'A new earthquake' is what peasant farmer leader Chavannes Jean-Baptiste of the Peasant Movement of Papay (MPP) called the news that Monsanto will be donating 60,000 seed sacks (475 tons) of hybrid corn seeds and vegetable seeds, some of them treated with highly toxic pesticides. The MPP has committed to burning Monsanto's seeds, and has called for a march to protest the corporation's presence in Haiti on June 4, for World Environment Day."

Groups Around the US Join Haitian Farmers in Protesting "Donation" of Monsanto Seeds

Beverly Bell, Truthout: "'We're for seeds that have never been touched by multinationals. In our advocacy, we say that seeds are the patrimony of humanity. No one can control them,' said Doudou Pierre, national coordinating committee member of the National Haitian Network for Food Sovereignty and Food Security (RENHASSA), in a recent interview. 'We reject Monsanto and their GMOs. GMOs would be the extermination of our people.'"
