Monsanto, a global agricultural biotechnology corporation, is the world's leading producer of herbicide and of genetically engineered seed. The truth is, however, that Monsanto is contaminating the world with chemicals and genetically modified food crops for profit while claiming to feed the hungry and protect the environment. In 2006, AGRA, Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa, was established with funding from Bill Gates and The Rockefeller Foundation. Among the other founding members of, AGRA, we find: Monsanto, Novartis, Sanofi-Aventis, GlaxoSmithKline, Procter and Gamble, Merck, Mosaic, Pfizer, Sumitomo Chemical and Yara. The fact that these corporations are either chemical or pharmaceutical manufacturers is no coincidence. Climate change offers these businesses a perfect excuse to prey on the poorest countries by swooping in to "rescue" the farmers and people with their GMO crops and chemical pesticides. These corporations eradicate the traditional ways of the country's agriculture for the sake of enormous profits.
The introduction of GMOs drastically affects a local farmers income, as the price of chemicals required for GMOs and seeds from Monsanto cripples the farmer's meager profit margins. There are even many cases of Monsanto suing small farmers after pollen from their GMO crops accidentally cross with the farmer's crops. Because Monsanto has a patent on their brand of seed, they claim the farmer is in violation of patent laws.
Anonymous, the infamous cyber 'hackivist' group, responsible for many resistance rallies and hackings of various major companies and governments has decided that these 'disgusting and inhumane practices will not be tolerated.'
I think it's extraordinary how Anon has surely moved away from doing things for the 'lulz' to actually protesting and trying to free oppressed and enslaved people all over the world.. It truly is a revolution.
