Todos contra el abuso de la tierra
At this point in time, almost everyone knows that we are experiencing global changes which are affecting each and every aspect of our economy. Agriculture has been particularly affected, and since it is agriculture that provides our daily bread, we need to pay special attention to it. It would seem that a new way of life is coming into existence: one of greater awareness, of greater enlightenment… a way of life in which companies that are accustomed to making a living from crafty, abusive practices that do not pay heed to the very essence of mankind are beginning to be called into question. For when you abuse the land and the Earth, you are putting man’s health at risk.
Nowadays many are those who voice complaints regarding the malpractice of multinational companies, whose riches grow thanks to products which are truly noxious for the environment and different ecosystems, or who force emproverished rural communities to pay for what is by rights their own. We need to demand – without fear – the right to food and agriculture free from GMO (genetic modification).
