Paraguayans Protest Against U.S. Multinational

Asuncion, Sep 17 (Prensa Latina) Groups of Paraguayans protested today in downtown Asuncion against the U.S. transnational Monsanto and official authorisation for transgenic crops of corn and cotton.

Social organizations that are part of the Campaign for Life and Human Rights, thus joined the international movement called Occupy Monsanto that take place in many countries.

Posters with the motto “Monsanto Out Paraguay” and “We Stand For Life” were peaked by protesters, along with another that referred to Federico Franco, currently holding the presidency of the Republic, with the phrase Monfranco Out.

Some participants spoke near the Pantheon of the Heroes, denouncing the serious damage to the health of farmers, the environment and lands caused by seeds and pesticides sold by Monsanto to the country.

There, it was announced that, throughout this week, there will be activities in the streets to defend national and native seed against the avalanche of crops with GM seeds directly approved by Franco and brought into the country by Monsanto.

As part of the Week of the Seed, an event also takes place with representatives of peasant and indigenous organizations and other civil society to discuss and disseminate the damage caused by the opening to GM seed.

Among them, the damage done by this government decision to national plans for food sovereignty, the indigenous seed used by small and humble farmers and the health of those who work the land.
