Sunday 30th of August 17.00 hr:

Screening of the "The World acoording to Monsanto", with info about the action STOPGMO

The World acoording to Monsanto
(English spoken with Dutch subtitles)
How much outrage can a single multinational corporation inspire? How much damage can they inflict? The breathtaking new film, The World According to Monsanto, features a company that sets the new standard. From Iowa to Paraguay, from England to India, Monsanto is uprooting our food supply and replacing it with their patented genetically engineered creations. And along the way, farmers, communities, and nature become collateral damage.

The film is the work of celebrated award-winning French filmmaker Marie-Monique Robin, whose three years of work on four continents exposes why Monsanto has become the world's poster child for malignant corporate influence in government and technology. Combining secret documents with accounts by victims, scientists and policy makers, she guides us through a web of misleading reports, pressure tactics, collusion, and attempted corruption. And we learn how the company systematically tricked governments into allowing dangerous genetically modified ( GM) foods into our diet— with Monsanto in charge of determining if they're safe.

After the screening Farm de Hartstocht will provide local food. Someone from Sociaal Initiatief will explain about STOP GMO, an initiative of angry citizens to bring together forces for food and agriculture without genetic manipulation (see Dutch website, or mail Mensen van A SEED zijn er om vragen te beantwoorden over soja en genetische manipulatie in de landbouw en voedselketen.
