What follows is a living nightmare of one farmer in Wisconsin, a founder of the Seed Savers Exchange, a leader in trying to stop NAIS, a man trying to protect Amish by going pro se in court for them, a man who goes out to his barn in sub-zero temperatures at night for weeks, helping to deliver lambs. He is a farmer who has raised flax for years and now, suddenly, this year, because of Monsanto helping the FDA to write seed regulations, his seed cleaning equipment is defined as a source of "seed contamination" and he can't sell flax seeds.
Included under that regulation are all seed used as food, so raw seed - flax, poppy, sesame; all sprouting seeds - wheat, alfalfa, beans, greens, etc.; all seed pressed into oil - corn, soy, canola, sunflower, etc.; all seed used for animal feed. And now you have only a glimpse at how Monsanto's infiltration of our government affects control of seeds and criminalizes quite normal and clean small farming. This is only on the crop side. NAIS is more monstrous by far on the animal side. And SWAT team attacks are happening on the dairy side.
Obama picked Vilsack. Vilsack is Monsanto. Monsanto helped design NAIS which can provide it a means of wiping out animals stocks and substituting GMO animals - which it will own with patents. Monsanto is attacking hundreds of farmers in Illinois right now, Obama's state, right now. Our food supply itself is under threat and Obama has opened the door. He didn't "listen" to the grassroots but tramped on them in support of the most evil corporation on earth - the one responsible for altering nature itself, corrupting government to set that loose, and dumping pesticides throughout the earth. Obama's inauguration is no day for celebration by farmers or by anyone who eats or wishes for a real democracy or cares about a healthier world or saving forests or wants to stop global warming - because they are all immensely threatened by Monsanto.
Now, one farmer's reaction to being caught in this. (And Charles Walters, mentioned below, just passed away two days ago, a giant in terms of his contribution to sustainable agriculture.)
