Percy Schmeiser – The Man Who Beat Monsanto
Nov. 18, 2011
Canadian Farmer tells the story of how a corporation by the name of Monsanto tried to take his farm, his land and his life away.
How he Fought Back and Won!!
This is not only a take over of Canadian farms but a problem that is happening all around the world and Monsanto is bent on controlling the seeds of plants that produce food for the world. Their believe is that “he who controls the seed, controls the world” and their goal is world domination to control the food greed and power.
Among the changes in agriculture in Canada and the United States and who owns life forms on the planet is at question. Here a large corporation called Monsanto claims they are God and own the seed to grow foods.
The presumption is that any genetically modified seed belongs to them by the form of a patent. But they intentionally spread the seeds to infect organic farms and then take the farmer to court basically to bankrupt them and put them out of business.
This is what happened to Percy Schmeiser of Saskatchewan in Canada which is the agricultural heartland of Canada’s food for Canadians.
GMO crops were introduced in 1996 in soya, corn, cotton and rapeseed (canola) crops and the promises were from Monsanto was increased yields, more nutritious, less chemicals and food that would be plentiful so we can feed the hungry world in sustainable agriculture. All of those promises turned out to be false.
The GMO seeds required more chemicals and they dominate any farmers fields killing off the organic plants. This plan of Monsanto would effectively give them a monopoly with no competition from any other food producer and it was almost successful.
Monsanto claims that they own all seeds, and all seeds consumed by any life form and that means they own you. The insanity continues to this day with patent infridgment cases.
This corporation has taken farmers to court, have stripped them of their very land, and have the audacity of stealing people’s livelihoods hoping that they can put every farmer out of business.
The story is riveting and makes a person consider if you have children or grandchildren like Percy does, what kind of world will you leave for future generations. Percy was concerned about Monsanto controlling and contaminating his seeds and taking away his farm and he fought against it.
Percy worked on farming and developed his own seeds for 50 years, and Monsanto threatened them, intimidated them and tried to take their land away because they owned their own brand of seed. Hardly a claim to owning “all the seeds” but they attempted to do this by cornering farmers and beating them down in courtroom trials while running up expenses.
Monsanto threw everything and the kitchen sink at Percy and his wife and Percy fought back. Percy loved his farm and he loved his wife and his kids and his grand kids. He worried about what Monsanto was doing to food, the same food that would feed generations to come with poison.
But mainly Percy did not quit and he persisted in numerous court challenges that Monsanto threw his way to stop one Canadian farmer with guts and ethics.
Listen to Percy’s Story about what Monsanto did to him, his farm and his life as a farmer. Percy was a specialist in breeding and growing canola seeds and plants.
What is being proposed as Percy says, is that you will not have the right to grow your own plants, even in your own back yard for home gardens.
Organic farms will be put out of business because Monsanto will own the seeds, and the rights to the seeds no matter if there is contamination and the GMO seeds are dominant seeds, which will take over all farming lands and plantings.
This is all with the written permission of the US government who are getting campaign kickbacks from Monsanto. The FDA has also colluded with Monsanto and drug company interests.
The whole idea is to make the seeds of plants only controlled by Monsanto and they will all be genetically modified seeds, none will be organic or natural.
Percy Schmeiser Tells of Monsanto’s Plants to Dominate the World’s Food Supply
The Terminator Gene is a gene that is put into a seed, when the seed becomes a plant, that plant will not seed again it will be terminated. Basically this accomplishes sterility in plants.
Monsanto will make this a law so that any farmer has to buy only GMO seeds from Monsanto over and over again and they will again dominate the world.
Another modification Monsanto has in store is called the Cheater Gene which appears to be a normal plant but with the addition of more chemicals it becomes another terminator gene and the plant will not be able to seed or be reproduced through it’s own seeds.
Monsanto will kill any seeds that are organic, they will produce low quality chemicals put into seeds that will require an increasing amount of chemicals to maintain and only Monsanto chemicals like Round Up will be used.
The control will be with this corporation only and they want to control all farms and your food supply. This is a pretty insane company with some grand ideas of world domination, but they will be stopped sooner than they think.
No one Wants to Eat Contaminated GMO Foods
95 % of the people polled in January 2011 said they will not eat Genetically Modified Foods acording to an NPR poll.
GMO products are not labeled for a reason and that is because no one would eat them if they knew what was in the food. Mostly all corn is now genetically modified along with soy plants and more genetic altering is underway.
Last summer the FDA approved a genetically modified salmon and now science has moved from plants and seeds to animals and reproduction of strange animals that do not exist naturally. The giant salmon was created to make more money for the fish industry and food producers but it is entirely unnatural and these fish are untested.
GMO foods will also contain prescription drugs and vaccines in plants even sterilization drugs and psychiatric drugs without you knowing about it. Last year Health Canada seemingly approved putting chemo drugs in french fries. The story was quickly taken out of the media but it is most likely in the works. Consumers will not know what drugs are their food with a government controlled industry the drug and food production corporations have teamed up.
The foods are being poisoned and right now the Canadian and US government are being fooled by Monsanto and farmers are being robbed of their farms.
The future of this diabolical corporation will surely meet with its own death eventually but people must demand their government to put a stop to the corporate control of the food supply.
Percy Appears in New Mexico
We need more people like Percy Schmeiser and more Canadian farmers with a backbone to break the back of this corporate self interests of Monsanto and their attempts to control the world’s food supply for greed and profit.
