Now I see the power of Twitter!

I wanted to see if anyone in Twitterland was concerned about GMOs or the attempt to have heirloom seeds outlawed.

#seeds and #EU came up with nothing interesting but #Monsanto hit the jackpot. I followed a link to this :

I have no idea yet who or what Anonymous is but if they have a fan club I’m in. Going to sleep well tonight knowing the groundswell of opinion against Monsanto and its ilk is growing.

Night night,

I am the kind of person who always has to know why things are the way they are so my interests range from genetics and biology to politics and what makes people tick. For fun I play online mmorpgs, read, listen to a music, dance when I get the chance and landscape my rather large block. Work is writing. When a story I am working on is going well I'm on cloud nine. On bad days I go out and dig big holes... View all posts by acflory

    Monsanto are dirty players, led my filthy individuals, however I think it would be wise to also help bolster and support the people who are collecting and selling those heirloom seeds. And Never EVER buy any product that has been tarnished with the Monsanto brush. This is what i am trying to do anyway, i think as a collective we are very strong! .. morning .. celi

      I’m glad you saw this. I just FB messaged you the link. I referred AC Flory to the Farmy yesterday because it is an example of what to do and how to live which will beat Monsanto and their money hungry conscience-ess ilk.

    Twitter is very interesting that way — some trivial things become huge stories on Twitter, but there is also a lot of tweeting about important things. You’ll find both and I kind of like the mix.

    I can’t understand how the US Senate could pass the Monsanto protection act or why it would want to. It’s not in the interest of the people.
    In South America Monsanto have reverted to dirty tricks like spraying non Monsanto crops with Round-Up which has penetrated ground water and made people ill. They must be help responsible for their acts. I hope they don’t yet own the UK or Australian Governments and can’t spoil the livelihood of farmers or the health of more people world wide.
    Join in the actions that call for them to be brought to book fir their actions.

    I have just Facebooked the link both as a status update and as a message to my friends. I have Twitter but don’t use it. I will post about it also. I see you have linked up with Celi 🙂

    Monsanto controlling the food chain reads like a movie script doesn’t it? One company slowly and insidiously taking control of what the masses put in their mouths, to what end? Apart from money of course.

    Surely they must know that uniformity of seed is a bad thing but they are pushing on regardless. If it was a movie we would all see the inevitable coming of the end and know that something needs to be done now to change their course.
