Mexico is battleground in the global food wars

Monday, August 31, 2015

On one side of the battle line is Demanda Colectiva, a collective of 53 scientists, 22 civil rights organizations and NGO fighting to protect Mexico’s extraordinary wealth of food crop biodiversity; on the other is a coalition of companies favoring genetical modification led by US agribusiness giant Monsanto.
