Big Biotech Seeks to Rule EU

Just on the heels of France banning all GMO cultivation, big biotech companies like Monsanto and Syngenta have been working to permeate and rise above EU government with what sounds like a corporate tribunal.

DuPont and Dow Chemical are poised to crash the EU with their co-created genetically modified 1507 Pioneer corn as well.

A corporatocracy didn't just occur out the blue, however. It's potentially being handed to biotech by the European Environmental Ministers with a law that sounds like a national ban (but actually isn't.)

Get this: according to Stop the Crop, the new "proposal gives biotech companies the power to decide whether a national ban is permitted or not." Gee, which way will biotech decide?
