Willie Nelson vs. Mansanto

Willienelson

300,000 Organic Farmers and Willie Nelson Sue Monsanto in Federal Court

Willie Nelson, President of Farm Aid, has recently called for the national Occupy movement to declare an "Occupy the Food System" action.

Nelson states, "Corporate control of our food system has led to the loss of millions of family farmers, destruction of our soil…"

The lawsuit addresses the bizarre and shocking issue of Monsanto harassing and threatening organic farmers with lawsuits of "patent infringement" if any organic farmer ends up with any trace amount of GM seeds on their organic farmland. MORE HERE

Willie's cover of Coldplay's “The Scientist” is available on iTunes. Proceeds from the sale of the single will go to the Cultivate Foundation.
