Neil Young has released a new 10-minute short film, Seeding Fear, which tells the story of a farmer named Michael White, who with his father Wayne, took on the Monsanto corporation in court. “The film I would like you to see tells the story of a farming family in America, but the same thing is happening around the world,” Young wrote, under his own name, in a statement. “It is a story that takes 10 minutes of your time to see. It is a simple human one, telling the heartbreaking story of one man who fought the corporate behemoth Monsanto, and it illustrates why I was moved to write The Monsanto Years. The film presents a rare opportunity to hear from the source as Mr. White is one of only four farmers who is still legally allowed to speak about his case as all the others have been effectively silenced.” Young timed the release of the video to a vote taking place in the House of Representatives, the proposed Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015. If passed, it would allow food companies to decide whether or not to label products as containing genetically modified ingredients. Copyright(c) 2015 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
