Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

This Satur­day, there will be world­wide demon­stra­tion aimed at rais­ing aware­ness about the ques­tion­able and danger­ous ac­tiv­i­ties of the multi-national biotech­nol­ogy com­pany, Mon­santo. The com­pany is in­fa­mous for its cre­ation of Agent Or­ange, DDT and PCBs, among other danger­ous chem­i­cals back when it was a chem­i­cal com­pany, and is now a pro­ducer of ge­net­i­cally en­gi­neered seed which it patents, prompt­ing peo­ple con­cerned with a safe and di­verse food sup­ply to label the com­pany’s prac­tises as “biopiracy”.

A demon­stra­tion will be tak­ing place right here in Stanstead, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm, at the foun­tain in the Rock Is­land sec­tor. Peo­ple are en­cour­aged to join the demon­stra­tion, bring­ing their own plac­ards.
