In the following days, Durban gears up to take direct action and use their collective creativity within the community, to stand up against the immoral and illegal actions of Monsanto. The issues in the spotlight include the right to eat real food and not poison, the rights of people to grow their own food and harvest their own seeds (as nature intended by design), to have harmful ingredients in foods acknowledged and displayed on packaging and the resistance to global corporate dominance.
