Thousands of Chileans have rallied against a bill dubbed the “Monsanto law” that would let multinationals patent GMO seeds. Activists say it will not only compromise food sovereignty in Chile, but will also harm consumer health.
Mass protests were held in at least nine cities across the Latin
American country to protest the bill that would allow for the
development of genetically modified seeds. Activists carried
banners emblazoned with slogans such as “Monsanto kills”
and “Monsanto will patent your life.”
Other protesters dressed up as bees and zombies to illustrate
their fear that the new legislation could lead to the degradation
of Chile’s biodiversity.
