Last weekend I took part in the March Against Monsanto here in Perth.
It was a good turn out for Perth. Between 1500 and 2000 people attended on a day which started at Parliament House, continued with a march through the city and ended up with speeches in Raine Square.
Monsanto are the most unethical company in the world, responsible for the likes of ‘Agent Orange‘ and genetically modified crops which had a variety of negative effects when independently tested on rats.
Monsanto are also responsible for promoting irresponsible use of ‘Round Up’, which we now know is linked with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Autism, Depression, Cancer and other medical conditions. It’s no surprise then that the local population are resisting Monsanto’s attempts to bully their way into WA’s agriculture industry.
