Percy Schmeiser is a little guy. He’s probably better off than most people, but he’s tiny compared with the Goliath company, Monsanto. Experience the fight that this resilient farmer has mounted against corporate domination riding roughshod across the landscape.
Consider for a moment that Percy Schmeiser has victimized Monsanto. Monsanto sells a genetically modified seed that sets up the opportunity for farmers to purchase Monsanto’s pesticide. They also sell the seed.They have won in court that they own the gene modification and therefore the seed and therefore the plants.If insects, the wind, whatever fripperies of nature carry their seed onto Schmeiser’s land and cause as little as one percent of his crop to include Monsanto’s plants, Monsanto owns all his plants.Is Schmeiser the victimizer when the court thus rules on what seems to be the rape of Schmeiser’s land?
Watch Percy Schmeiser and his wife stand up to intimidation and the risk of financial ruin.Get a feeling for how pervasive Monsanto’s stranglehold is against individual rights and sustainable sensibilities.Schmeiser fights to stop Monsanto from trespassing on his land, indeed, to pay him to remove their unwanted stuff from his property.
See this film.Get angry. Experience a ray of hope that corporations can be held accountable.
