    We are some of the most vocal Expats in Thailand pushing the envelope on awareness of how destructive & dangerous GMO’s are, As we have a small but growing business creating cold pressed organic oils & nut butters. The scourge of GMO’s & the Trans Pacific Partnership will destroy the access to & the safety of our natural foods, plus give unlimited powers to the Multi National Corporations. We support your struggle, God speed my friend!

    Please, don’t stop fighting, I can’t believe this chemical menace has got this far. It is only through government collusion that the courts could ever accept such a miserable excuse to sue people for acts of God.

      Even so most of us are ignorant of what there is in our food execpte when your get it from a very local producer.
      And even more if Steve Marsh`s fields have been contaminated all gardens on this planet can be samely damaged.
      We definatly must stop the life killers.

    This doesn’t make sense on any level, CBH can’t take GM grain due to contamination and not being able to segregate it, GM canola or round up ready will take over other farms, the verges, and remnant bush, nobody wants to eat it so it has no customers, it adversely affects bees, not to mention all the spraying that goes with it, it will contaminate other canola crops, it is impossible to believe that it is permitted and then the ‘clean green’ Australian image is promoted assuming we are all stupid. The only ones that this benefits are Monsanto and the ignorant farmer who was paid to put the GM canola in.
    Go Steve and your legal team, I wish you all the best and hopefully sanity will prevail,this is extremely important for food growers from the backyard to the globe.

    Monsanto is a greedy and dangerous corporation with a global ambition for the monopoly over seed production. They threaten the entire worlds seed supply with their GM seeds. If our heritage seeds become contaminated with their GM sterile seeds or if our global seed stock becomes contaminated with their GM sterile seeds then we as a species will be in trouble. This one company has bullied many American farmers and seed suppliers into bankruptcy. It manipulates government policies by lobbying and infiltrating government offices with their former executives who can influence government policy allowing them to control and manipulate policy to their advantage. I sincerly hope the Australian courts find in favor of Steve Marsh but Monsanto will be working in the background to influence the court decision. I also hope that the Australian government wakes up to the threat to Aussie farming that Monsanto represents. By allowing GM materials to be grown in your country you are putting every other seed product at risk. Gm seeds are dangerous things to have released into your agricultural system. You thought cane toads were bad, Monsanto GM seeds go far beyond cane toads and once Monsanto has a foothold on your system it will penetrate your government and manipulate policy to every aussie farmers disadvantage. Wake up Australia Monsanto is insidious and lies and alters truth to serve itself. If you value the your farming as I know you do stop Monsanto NOW. Ban their products. They are offering you nothing but trouble. Research the damage they do in America. Its really bad.

  • Agricultor australiano trava batalha contra a contaminação por transgênicos « Trovata Comunicação January 25, 2014 at 12:35 am

    […] Escrito por Manuela Araujo em 23 de janeiro de 2014 às 12:29 Tweet   Steve Marsh é agricultor e vive em Kojonup, na Austrália. Em 2010, ele perdeu a certificação biológica (orgânica) quando a canola geneticamente modificada (OGM) do seu vizinho contaminou 70% de sua plantação. Marsh processou o seu vizinho por prejuízos e, se ele ganhar a ação, não só protege o seu direito de cultivar alimentos biológicos livres de OGM, como também protege os nossos direitos de comer alimentos livres de transgênicos. . O uso de organismos geneticamente modificados (OGM ou transgênicos) coloca em sério risco a biodiversidade agrícola, para além de todos os problemas na saúde que começam finalmente a sair à luz do dia. Isto porque, além de os agricultores que optam por essa via deixarem de cultivar as variedades alimentares tradicionais adaptadas, a polinização pelo vento ou pelos agentes polinizadores faz-se a grandes distâncias, contaminando as culturas daquele que cultivam variedades não transgênicas. Trata-se de um verdadeiro ecocídio. . O caso do agricultor australiano Steve Marsh, que devido à contaminação com OGM, perdeu a certificação biológica, é apenas um entre muitos. Esta contaminação teve um impacto dramático sobre Steve e seus meios de subsistência, enquanto a Monsanto, por causa dos acordos firmados com cada agricultor GM, fica livre de qualquer responsabilidade, apenas ganha o lucro. Em vez de aceitar passivamente esta invasão, Steve decidiu tomar uma posição. Como o único caminho disponível,  ele  processou o seu vizinho por prejuízos e danos. . Como o processo judicial será muito caro, a Safe Food Foundation, lançou uma campanha de angariação de fundos para ajudar nesta batalha, pois pretendem que este seja um caso “bandeira” para alertar o mundo dos perigos da contaminação com transgênico.  A primeira audiência no tribunal está marcada para o próximo mês. . Este não é apenas o caso de Steve Marsh, é o caso de nós todos, que vemos ameaçada a nossa alimentação; por isso, a palavra-chave (hashtag)#IamSteveMarsh. . Veja um vídeo sobre o assunto (com legendas em espanhol) aqui. . Para apoiar a causa de Steve Marsh, acesse http://www.safefoodfoundation.org/take-action-online. […]

    This is huge, uniting all those that know the dangers of GMO’s, we need our animals to reproduce, we need labelling, we need GMO’s to be exposed for the evil they truly are. We need protection. Good Luck Steve! you are the one that may change things from absurd, wild and crazy back to the old respectful, cautious and considerate farming!!!!!!!!!!! we hope, please save Australia. l am so glad we have a safe food foundation, congrats..

    STEVE, I sooo support you.
    As a person with a “strange/odd” food allergy, I am totaly aware of how hard it is to find
    unGM food. People are starting to react drastically in their own personal body reactions to the GM food we have now.

    Food is a big concern for those who have special needs and disabilities. There are lots of food
    groups that these people cannot have. Each person is individual and GM has certainly made it
    harder for these people to buy (if they are lucky enough to be able to recognise) correct unGM food.

    Supporting you
    Tenshi

    Dear Steve and your precious wife and family.

    You are a deeply courageous person and I am inspired and encouraged by your incredible stance. Monsanto is an evil company that wants to destroy our planet all for it’s own ego and greed. Just because you can scientifically do something does not mean it is right to do it if it is dangerous to our health and environment. We as Australians commited to the future of this beautiful land and it’s people must stand beside Steve and his amazing struggle for us all. I hope people realise he fights with such courage is a struggle for us all. In the true spirit of the Anzacs we salute you and want you to know you are not alone in your fight for good over evil. May God bless you and keep you and for the rest of us apathy is the destroyer of our planet not large corporations. We all need to stand up everyone of us. I am on the dole and life is tough but I will still donate to Steve’s cause. If I can do it there is nothing stopping everyone else and herein we as a people of Australia can and will make a dufference. STOP THIS EVIL NOW DONATE TO STEVE”S CAUSE.

    Check this link http://www.foodstandards.gov.au/consumer/gmfood/applications/Pages/default.aspx. It isn’t just Monsanto and this list is all the foods that FSANZ have exempted from labelling….even though we tell the world that we label?! I contacted FSANZ and was told that maintaining a page that lists exemptions is :voluntary: so I guess they could take it down anytime,
    This is another little known website http://www.ogtr.gov.au/ which frankly firghtens the …out of me
    We need to inform people. we need to fight the idiiots who ask to see the dead bodies. This cannot be done by handouts in the street, it cannot all be done all online. Matt Preston you are on here form a political party…sure it would be seen as a jok but we could fund some really good TV commercials.
    God Bless you Steve
