Percy Schmeiser vs Monsanto

The Classic David vs Goliath Struggle
Now I have been following this Gentlemans story for a looong time now, and it never ceases to amaze me the wealth of knowledge and experience in our more mature Generations out there, and the total lack and ability of the Western Governments to detach themselves from the long Corporate arms, and just listen to some Real Plain Simple Common Sense...
But sad to say, it has become very apparent now, that until things are at their worst, nothing seems to get done. And its probably down to the experience of people like Percy, that in the long term, will inevitablly end up being the Saviours of the Day. You see, Companies Dont Care, People Do!!!...
And so, If you care about your Food, and your Family, I beg you to listen to Percy on Guns and Butter Radio. Probably one of the best interviews done with him, covering just about all the aspects of his case. I just wish my UK Government would get off their buts and listen to him also...

"Percy Schmeiser was mad as hell, and decided he wasn't going to take it.
Schmeiser has been growing canola -- the yellow-blossomed oilseed that used to be known as rapeseed -- for 40 years, and he knows his stuff. He's been experimenting, developing his own varieties, using his own seed and generally prospering with canola. reaping the benefits derived from growing an increasingly popular crop.

So when Monsanto, the giant multinational agro-chemical company that is at the forefront of developing genetically modified foods, accused him of patent infringement and demanded restitution for its seeds, his pride was hurt. He chose to fight rather than roll over and take it."
