You may or may not have heard about this case. Steve Marsh is a Western Australian farmer who lost his organic certification when his neighbour planted genetically modified canola (Monsanto). The seeds blew from the neighbours farm onto Steve’s property and contaminated his farm. Organic certification has zero tolerance for GMO and through no fault of his own, Steve’s livelihood has gone up in smoke. The Organic certifiers are working with Steve and doing their best to help him but even so. Steve has had one choice left remaining open to him and he has taken his neighbour to court to try to gain compensation for the loss of income and certification.
The case has been heard (it started on February 10th) but a verdict has not yet been reached, or at least not publically.
With many pro GMO organisations financially supporting the neighbour, Steve could do with a hand to help him cover court costs. Can you help?
