This week’s Earth Minute discusses Monsanto and how they are using the aftermath of earthquake to get Haitian farmers hooked on their seeds and chemicals. The peasants have declared that they will burn these seeds calling them a “very strong attack on small agriculture, farmers, biodiversity and local creole seed varieties”. They are then instead demanding food sovereignty and the right to define their own agricultural policies to grow healthy food for the local market and to grow in a way that respects the environment and mother earth. Something Monsanto knows nothing about.
