Another bad news for the company in 2015 has been the banning of GMOs in Scotland under the EU’s new “opt-out” rules regarding GM agriculture. Germany quickly followed with a request to also opt-out. Now, Greece and Latvia are also doing the same.

France is also looking at a possible opt-out solution to keep itself GMO-free. In September, a French appeals court upheld a 2012 ruling that found Monsanto guilty of chemical poisoning in the case of a farmer who developed neurological problems from using the company’s Lasso herbicide.

Meanwhile, in Asia, thousands of Indian farmers are mounting demonstrations against Monsanto and its deadly agenda.

This is all very encouraging news, but the battle has not yet been won. Roundup is still one of the most commonly-used weedkillers throughout the world as Monsanto continues to wage a chemical war against the world’s population.

We must continue the fight until GM agriculture is completely banned globally.

Not only would that be healthier, but it’s the right thing to do — and will even save us a lot of money (and help generating new profits on a decentralised and grass-roots level) at the same time.
