“Monsanto’s extending its power over the globe, with a massive new frankenseed factory in Argentina. Sofía Gatica and local neighbours have spoken out, and she has received death threats and a brutal beating. The threat is urgent — let’s stand with them and stop the plant.
Monsanto manufactures the genetically modified seeds that, when combined with toxic pesticides, create the devastating ‘monocultures’ — where nothing grows but a single plant — that increasingly cover our planet. Now they plan to build one of the world’s largest GM seed factories in Malvinas.
