Monsanto sponsors the Somos El Futuro Conference in Puerto Rico

Book - 12-10

 

Monsanto paid $5,000 as a “Bronze Sponsor” of the upcoming Somos El Futuro conference in San Juan. There is a problem with this.

Over the past ten years, Monsanto and its Dupont Pioneer partner have received $477.5 million in tax breaks and 238 million free gallons of water, from the government of Puerto Rico.

In fact, Puerto Rico has treated Monsanto very well.

In 2013, the company was inducted into the “Puerto Rico Agricultural Hall of Fame,” even though Monsanto has used Puerto Rico for the past 30 years, as an experimental location for development of genetically modified crops.

THE DARK SIDE OF MONSANTO

Recently, the relationship between Monsanto and Dupont Pioneer has undergone severe criticism…as well as their plan to build a “seed monopoly market” of genetically modified seeds and herbicides throughout the entire island.

In addition to producing glyphosate, “Roundup Ready” herbicide, and Roundup Ready seeds, Monsanto is also linked the development and use of NALED.

NALED is now produced by Valent USA, which has a global collaboration agreement with Monsanto.

All of this begs the question: with such a negative history in Puerto Rico, why would the Somos El Futuro conference invite Monsanto as one of its corporate sponsors?

  2. Monsanto? … de santo no tiene nada.
    I have said before that nothing occurs in a colony without either direction, decree, consent or knowledge on the part of the colonizer.
    When one considers the unethical practices of
    Monsanto, the same company that developed agent orange to reek havoc on Vietnam, their presence on the island is in keeping with the long history of human experimentation genocidal practices that US/corporate entities have been documented for executing against Puerto Rico for decades.
    This is a company that several European nations have banned. Should that not be reason enough to at least raise some red flags? Is it still not clear that the US does not have the people of PR best interest in mind?
    Despierta Boricua !!!
