Haitians March Against Monsanto



June 06, 2010 — On June 4 thousands of peasants and their allies marched under the banner of Mouveman Peyizan Papay, a decades-old farmers organization in Haiti, against a donation of hybrid corn seeds by agro-giant Monsanto. Mark Hare, an agronomist working with the MPP, explains why they’re upset with Monsanto. They marched for three hours, from Papay to Hinche.
