David Rogers at Politico tells us that, in the United States, the controversial ‘Monsanto Protection Act’ may be overturned at the end of this month.
This is about allowing biotech firms to protect sales of their genetically modified (GM, also called genetically engineered, GE) seeds. I’m grateful to GM Watch for drawing attention to this.
If you understand the US political system, you’re ahead of me! Please explain if you understand. Here’s what I know: I’m one of many who were horrified when this legal change in favour of the biotech giants was rushed through. There was far too little discussion about it. Now I hope that it’s going to be overturned.
The Fat Lady isn’t singing for the Monsanto Protection Act, yet. But perhaps she’ll sing very soon. When I hear of what happens, I’ll tell you. [Edit] Monsanto lost! You can follow the pingback on this post to see what happened.
