On 2nd June, 2014, FSG received yet another indication that the chemical corporation, Monsanto, is intensifying their focus on Africa. We received several tweets. Here are a few. And it is not a pleasant read:
@FoodSovereignGH @MonsantoCo Organic farmers use Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis) for the same (good) reason we do and no one complains that.

@FoodSovereignGH @MonsantoCo And RoundupReady crops help promote low-till or no-till farming, which is good for soil health. Quelle horreur! — Monsanto Europe (@MonsantoEurope) June 2, 2014
@FoodSovereignGH @MonsantoCo No one imposes GM seeds on anyone. Some farmers choose to buy them to address problems. Why limit that choice? — Monsanto Europe (@MonsantoEurope) June 2, 2014
