Don’t Mess with the Corn: Lessons from Mexico’s Struggle against GMOs ‹ The Argentina Independent

This is a wonderful article.  I learned so much about the Mexican point of view – what  strong, vibrant, intelligent, determined, colorful and interesting, diverse peoples.  I understand so much more about what they are going through and their own struggles against the corporate seed/chemical giants (basically Dow / Dupont / Monsanto / Syngenta soon to be ChemChina ?)  BASF )  I feel terrible for them and all the other countries that are experiencing this force.  I feel so hopeless in the US, like we can never get our land back from these mega monsters;  I want to see them succeed – their courage,  outspokenness  and activism is awesome.

Soledad Barruti investigates what can be learnt from Mexico in its struggle against genetically-modified corn, and tells of the daily violence experienced by those on the frontline.
