Beekeepers have a voice

So recently there has been some debate over GM crops and the affect it has on bees, nectar, pollen etc. A German court recently ruled that a beekeepers honey wasn’t suitable for human consumption as traces of GMO corn were found in it. French beekeepers, worried that they might suffer the same, marched on a Monsanto location, employing a trojan horse technique, they let in 100 beekeepers and set up 2 hives.

Video documenting the protest. Note: It is in French.

Hungary has also completely banned the growing of Monsanto maize, resulting in the destruction of 1000 acres of GMO corn.
