    In Defense Of Percy Schmeiser

    in Legal

     
     
    Monsanto Company is one of the world’s leading agro-chemical companies.  With its wealth and power, it seemed impossible for anyone to take this company to court and win, much less a middle class canola farmer from Canada. Percy Schmeiser was that farmer. He was the first farmer ever to win a law suit against this multinational giant. The landmark case, which went before the Federal Court of Canada, attracted international attention because it demonstrated the power of a single farmer.  Since then, Mr. Schmeiser has been traveling around the world to lecture about his experience speaking to farmers, the public as well as government leaders about this case. He is strongly opposed to genetically modified crops for very practical reasons.
    Monsanto still maintains that Mr. Schmeiser violated their patent and continues to attack his credibility. In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to activist, Percy Schmeiser as he discusses in detail, this landmark victory law suit. Stay tuned!

    Percy Schmeiser Talks About Why GMO Labeling Matters

    in Food

    Percy Schmeiser is well known activist that has been fighting hard to educate the public about GMO’s and the issues that arise for farmers. He was the first farmer to win a law suit against Monsanto. The landmark case, which went before the Federal Court of Canada, attracted international attention because it demonstrated the power of the farmer. When it comes to our food in American, there are no laws that mandate labeling for GMO’s. Consumers assume that the manufacturers are using ingredients that are safe and will not affect their health. Unfortunately, 80% of the packaged foods in America contain Genetically Engineered ingredients that have not been proven safe and are not labeled! The Right2KnowMarch.org which was organized to raise awareness for GMO-Labeling is a historic event that kicked off on October 1st and will continue to October 16th. Marchers from across the country will be walking from New York City to the White House, demanding labeling of all Genetically Engineered Foods. This event seeks to raise national awareness and create pressure in the 2012 election cycle for politicians to take positions and enact legislation requiring Genetically Engineered foods to be labeled. In many ways this march is the beginning of a new broad-based movement for GMO labeling. Percy Schmeiser will be speaking at the event about his experience and also to educate the public about why GMO labeling matters! In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to Percy Schmeiser about his advocacy about GMO’s and why there needs to be clarity with our labels.
