 Listen Now!

The show includes excerpts from the January 10, 2002 press conference where the Saskatchewan Organic Directorate (SOD) announced their intent to sue biotech giants Monsanto and Aventis for infringing on the rights of organic farmers to grow organic crops. They charge that the genetically engineered (GE) crops of these companies contaminate organic crops and prevent organic farmers from being able to grow these crops. Also featured in this show is music from the benefit concert to raise money for the lawsuit including members of Wide Mouth Mason, Eileen Laverty, and the Mighty Spiffs.
