In an obscene development, a Monsanto executive is winning this year’s “Nobel Prize of agriculture” – the prestigious World Food Prize – for creating GMOs. Receiving it legitimizes the sort of rampant genetic modification Monsanto pioneered, and helps validate a ruthless business model that impoverishes farmers and monopolizes our food.
Despite the criticism, Monsanto and Syngenta executives are set to receive their prize on World Food Day, October 16 – a slap in the face to everyone harmed by their products. We don’t have much time, so we need to publicize this obscene decision – if enough of us get word of this out, and let people know that the World Food Prize is threatening its reputation, we can shame it into choosing a more suitable candidate.
Genetically modified crops and bee-killing pesticides do not deserve the highest praise.
Tell the World Food Prize Foundation not to reward Monsanto and bee-killer Syngenta’s outrageous practices. The award ceremony is in less than 1 week – please act now!!!
