Haitian Peasants Say: Monsanto, Get Out of Haiti!
APPEALS, 19 Jul 2010
Monsanto is trying to offer the Haitian Ministry of Agriculture a fatal gift. The Haitian peasants will receive 475 tons of its seeds. This worsens the farmers’ situation. The organisations of La Via Campesina have expressed their strong disagreement and have demonstrated during the World Environment Day (Juny 4th) to say “no to Monsanto’s mortal gift which is a new earthquake hitting the agricultural sector”. They are asking your support to protect their food sovereignty. Help them today by signing a personal letter to the Haitian authorities.
