American Monsanto Farmers War with Swiss Syngenta Farmers #Science

There are tens of thousands of lawsuits said to be pending against Syngenta for introduction of GMO corn to China and this came from the same population which did absolutely nothing about the invasive and predatory introduction of proprietary seed products by Monsanto into Europe.  The glory of this kind of hypocrisy is a beacon to the world.

The first of tens of thousands of U.S. lawsuits over Swiss agribusiness giant Syngenta's introduction of a genetically engineered corn seed variety is underway in a Kansas federal courtroom.

The trial that began Monday in Kansas City, Kansas, involves four Kansas farmers representing about 7,300 farmers in the state. Another trial involving about 60,000 cases begins next month in Minnesota.

The lawsuits allege Syngenta introduced the seed variety to the U.S. market before China approved it for imports, wrecking an increasingly important export market for U.S. corn and causing price drops.
Syngenta denies it caused farmer losses.

The Kansas trial is the first test case. It and the Minnesota trial will provide guidance for how the complex web of litigation in state and federal courts could be resolved.  First farmer lawsuit begins against Syngenta over China trade

The patent absurdity of this double-standard duplicity is obvious and so is the solution:  rename Syngenta to Monsanto and, as we have seen from the same farmers in the past, they won't say another word.
