Monsanto 1, 60 Family Farmers (and the world) 0

I just have to pass this along.  Are we that grow and replant  seeds to be criminals? The short answer is YES! That is private property.

Organic seed farmer Jim Gerritsen: "This flawed ruling will not deter us from continuing to seek justice."

On a day that 'Occupy' groups, environmental and food justice organizations have called for a global day of action to resist corporate control of the food system, news comes that a federal judge has ruled in favor of seed giant Monsanto Co. in a lawsuit filed on behalf of 60 family farmers, seed businesses and organic agricultural organizations challenging the company's seed patents.

"Over the last thirty years, we have witnessed a massive consolidation of our food system. Never have so few corporations been responsible for more of our food chain. Of the 40,000 food items in a typical U.S. grocery store, more than half are now brought to us by just 10 corporations. "
