Latin American communities fight GMO
A bit of regional news on Monsanto vs. Latin America. This Activist Post article tells us a bit about what is happening here. It includes some specific information on what is currently happening in Costa Rica.
In small Latin American countries, such as Guatemala, Costa Rica and Nicaragua, most farmers do not know the pros and cons of using genetically-modified organisms (GMOs). Many do not even know what GMO means. But Monsanto is changing all of this with an aggressive strategy to expand internationally, threatening many varieties of natural corn seed available throughout this region.
