Moe Parr is a seed cleaner in Indiana, USA. In February 2007, Monsanto initiated a law suit against him. The biotech company claimed that Moe had encouraged farmers of genetically engineered (GE) soybean to save their seed.
Moe is one of many farmers in North America who've faced coercion from Monsanto through legal and economic intimidation.
"Monsanto doesn't really care that you win the case because as soon as you win the case, they're going on to the next court," says Moe.
Along with Canadian farmer Ross Murray, Moe is in Australia to speak with Australian farmers about his experiences with GE crops.
Support Australian farmers who don't want to grow GE crops by asking your government to:
* stay/go GE-free
* introduce strict liability laws that puts the responsibility for contamination onto the GE seed companies.
