We Stand With El Salvador!

In from US Uncut

El Salvador has rejected all Monsanto’s GMO seeds in stunning defeat for the multinational and a huge victory for small farmers and consumers. Prior to 2013, El Salvador purchased 70% of their seeds from Monsanto, but today that number is zero. Instead of relying on corporate seeds, small farmers now contribute dozens of local varieties which are higher quality and half the price. This is also a significant win considering the US government last year threatened to withhold $300 million in foreign aid if El Salvador did not buy Monsanto seeds. Share if the US should follow El Salvador’s lead and give Monsanto the boot!
