Mother Earth to be Sued
Biotech companies are trying to find a way to patent a variety of vegetables and fruits forcing growers to pay for seed or risk being sued. There are said to be loopholes in the European law which have allowed companies like Monsanto to gain exclusive rights over conventional seeds. With a strong backing of people power Avaaz is looking to stop this immediately and free growers from facing charges.
