Plus biologist and GMO specialist Florianne Koechlin from Switzerland, who explains her support as follows:
“My main concern is that Monsanto promotes worldwide an agriculture which is disastrous. Huge monocultures, patented GMO seeds, pesticides, synthetic fertilisers. It’s the contrary of a sustainable and agroecological way for the future. But Monsanto is not alone: Syngenta or BASF or Dow Chemicals and others are in the same boat. So this tribunal is not only about Monsanto but about all the giant agrobussinesses in this world and their exploitation of farmers and the environment. Therefore I strongly suggest that you support this Tribunal, it’s important.”
Do you personally know people with very big networks who are prepared to speak out for sustainable food and agriculture, and against the power of corporations like Monsanto? Be it a chef, a scientist, a musician, a film star or another celebrity… Ask them and let us know!
