Poland Announces Complete Ban on Monsanto’s Genetically Modified Maize

Following the anti-Monsanto activism launched by nations like France and Hungary, Poland has announced that it will launch a complete ban on growing Monsanto’s genetically modified strain MON810.

The announcement, made by Agriculture Minister, Marek Sawicki, sets yet another international standard against Monsanto’s genetically modified creations.

In addition to being linked to a plethora of health ailments, Sawicki says that the pollen originating from this GM strain may actually be devastating the already dwindling bee population.
The decree is in the works. It introduces a complete ban on the MON810 strain of maize in Poland,” Sawicki stated to the press.
Similar opposition to Monsanto occurred on March 9th, when 7 European countries blocked a proposal by the Danish EU presidency which would permit the cultivation of genetically modified plants on the entire continent.

It was France, who in February, lead the charge against GMOs by asking the European Commission to suspend authorization to Monsanto’s genetically modified corn. What’s more, the country settled a landmark case in favor of the people over Monsanto, finding the biotech giant guilty of chemical poisoning.

In a ruling given by a court in Lyon (southeast France), grain grower Paul Francois stated that Monsanto failed to provide proper warnings on the Lasso weedkiller product label which resulted in neurological problems such as memory loss and headaches. The court ordered an expert opinion to determine the sum of the damages, and to verify the link between Lasso and the reported illnesses. The result was a guilty charge, paving the way for further legal action on behalf of injured farmers.

Since 1996, the agricultural branch of the French social security system has gathered about 200 alerts per year regarding sickness related to pesticides. However only 47 cases were even recognized in the past 10 years.

Nations are continually taking a stand against Monsanto, with nations like Hungary destroying 1000 acres of GM maize and India slamming Monsanto with ‘biopiracy‘ charges.

Awesome to hear. I wonder if these nations band together, will their voice be heard? Has there been any states in UniStat that are sympathetic or have even banned GMO products thus far?

Won't be long now before the CIA announces that they have discovered an off shoot of Al Qaeda operating inside Poland (the Polish Sausage, perhaps?) and they feel obligated to send in the drones and the Marines to liberate the Polish people from the terrorism inflicted on them by the Polish Sausage arm of Al Qaeda.

PS: Does Poland have any oil? That may help to grease the weapons, the armors and all that, of course.

Little do they realize the nasty Monsanto GMO once released gets into everything. In Maui it was papayas in the states it's corn. If anybody uses it it cross pollinates everything. You can't get away. Do the research. The genie is out of the bottle. Everything has GMO genes in it. Bon appetite.
