Black brother lead the way

"The National Black Farmers Association is calling on its 66,000members to launch a nationwide boycott of agricultural giant Monsantoto protest a proposed a $1.5 billion merger by the company that wouldreduce competition and crush small farmers.

This news just in from Eco-Farm and USAgNet. This is the same industrial model of corporate consolidation that is currently the basis for the biofuels boom, i.e., the merger of major genetic engineering companies with giant grain and cellulose companies. Encountering resistance to GMOs in our food system, Monsanto and Syngenta are looking to spread them into our fuel and fiber industries."
