Percy Schmeiser – The Man who Beat Monsanto and Won against GMO Farming

17th November 2011

A Canadian Farmer tells the story of how a corporation by the name of Monsanto tried to take his farm, his land and his life away.

How he Fought Back and Won!!

This is not only a take over of Canadian farms but a problem that is happening all around the world and Monsanto is bent on controlling the seeds of plants that produce food for the world. Their believe is that “he who controls the seed, controls the world” and their goal is world domination to control the food greed and power.

Among the changes in agriculture in Canada and the United States and who owns life forms on the planet is at question. Here a large corporation called Monsanto claims they are God and own the seed to grow foods.

The presumption is that any genetically modified seed belongs to them by the form of a patent. But they intentionally spread the seeds to infect organic farms and then take the farmer to court basically to bankrupt them and put them out of business.

This is what happened to Percy Schmeiser of Saskatchewan in Canada which is the agricultural heartland of Canada’s food for Canadians.

GMO crops were introduced in 1996 in soya, corn, cotton and rapeseed (canola) crops and the promises were from Monsanto was increased yields, more nutritious, less chemicals and food that would be plentiful so we can feed the hungry world in sustainable agriculture. All of those promises turned out to be false.

The GMO seeds required more chemicals and they dominate any farmers fields killing off the organic plants. This plan of Monsanto would effectively give them a monopoly with no competition from any other food producer and it was almost successful.

Monsanto claims that they own all seeds, and all seeds consumed by any life form and that means they own you. The insanity continues to this day with patent infringement cases.

This corporation has taken farmers to court, have stripped them of their very land, and have the audacity of stealing people’s livelihoods hoping that they can put every farmer out of business.

The story is riveting and makes a person consider if you have children or grandchildren like Percy does, what kind of world will you leave for future generations. Percy was concerned about Monsanto controlling and contaminating his seeds and taking away his farm and he fought against it.

Percy worked on farming and developed his own seeds for 50 years, and Monsanto threatened them, intimidated them and tried to take their land away because they owned their own brand of seed. Hardly a claim to owning “all the seeds” but they attempted to do this by cornering farmers and beating them down in courtroom trials while running up expenses.

Monsanto threw everything and the kitchen sink at Percy and his wife and Percy fought back. Percy loved his farm and he loved his wife and his kids and his grand kids. He worried about what Monsanto was doing to food, the same food that would feed generations to come with poison.

But mainly Percy did not quit and he persisted in numerous court challenges that Monsanto threw his way to stop one Canadian farmer with guts and ethics.

Listen to Percy’s Story about what Monsanto did to him, his farm and his life as a farmer. Percy was a specialist in breeding and growing canola seeds and plants.


Percy speaking in Pennsylvania Warning Other Farmers to Stop Monsanto dead in their tracks before the Monsanto GMO seeds contaminate their farms.

What is being proposed as Percy says, is that you will not have the right to grow your own plants, even in your own back yard for home gardens.

Organic farms will be put out of business because Monsanto will own the seeds, and the rights to the seeds no matter if there is contamination and the GMO seeds are dominant seeds, which will take over all farming lands and plantings.

This is all with the written permission of the US government who are getting campaign kickbacks from Monsanto. The FDA has also colluded with Monsanto and drug company interests.

The whole idea is to make the seeds of plants only controlled by Monsanto and they will all be genetically modified seeds, none will be organic or natural.

Percy Schmeiser Tells of Monsanto’s Plants to Dominate the World’s Food Supply

The Terminator Gene is a gene that is put into a seed, when the seed becomes a plant, that plant will not seed again it will be terminated. Basically this accomplishes sterility in plants.

Monsanto will make this a law so that any farmer has to buy only GMO seeds from Monsanto over and over again and they will again dominate the world.

Another modification Monsanto has in store is called the Cheater Gene which appears to be a normal plant but with the addition of more chemicals it becomes another terminator gene and the plant will not be able to seed or be reproduced through it’s own seeds.

Monsanto will kill any seeds that are organic, they will produce low quality chemicals put into seeds that will require an increasing amount of chemicals to maintain and only Monsanto chemicals like Round Up will be used.

The control will be with this corporation only and they want to control all farms and your food supply. This is a pretty insane company with some grand ideas of world domination, but they will be stopped sooner than they think.

No one Wants to Eat Contaminated GMO Foods

95 % of the people polled in January 2011 said they will not eat Genetically Modified Foods acording to an NPR poll.

GMO products are not labeled for a reason and that is because no one would eat them if they knew what was in the food. Mostly all corn is now genetically modified along with soy plants and more genetic altering is underway.

Last summer the FDA approved a genetically modified salmon and now science has moved from plants and seeds to animals and reproduction of strange animals that do not exist naturally. The giant salmon was created to make more money for the fish industry and food producers but it is entirely unnatural and these fish are untested.

GMO foods will also contain prescription drugs and vaccines in plants even sterilization drugs and psychiatric drugs without you knowing about it. Last year Health Canada seemingly approved putting chemo drugs in french fries. The story was quickly taken out of the media but it is most likely in the works. Consumers will not know what drugs are their food with a government controlled industry the drug and food production corporations have teamed up.

The foods are being poisoned and right now the Canadian and US government are being fooled by Monsanto and farmers are being robbed of their farms.

The future of this diabolical corporation will surely meet with its own death eventually but people must demand their government to put a stop to the corporate control of the food supply.

Percy Appears in New Mexico

We need more people like Percy Schmeiser and more Canadian farmers with a backbone to break the back of this corporate self interests of Monsanto and their attempts to control the world’s food supply for greed and profit.

    monsanto should be destroyed, these are the real terrorist, how does governments allow these crazy people to keep brainless things

    • wendy

      watch food inc…explains monsanto’s depth and breadth of influence and control in the gov’t. their representives are in every important committed inthe givt…FDA, EPA, USDA, AG…even the supreme court (Clarence Thomas was a lawyer for Monsanto)….no wonder they get away with crimes against humanity and nature. will take a fearless, relentless uprising to topple them.

      its called bribery, being bought off. Woops, I mean lobbying and campaign contributions…

  • Harp

    Very interesting read, thanks for taking the time to write it up.

    • Caroline

      Thank u for this priceless information.”Get up, Stand up People, don’t give up the fight”It is a matter of life saving for us and future generation.Nature has a very precious, unique, intelligent, beneficial cycle and talent. It nourrishes us, provide oxygen, material for housing, balance our emotions by grounding us, it as has a natural artistic talent, source of inspiration… It deserve so much more than respect, it deserves to be loved and taken care of. Let’s just do it and keep figthing The Enemies of Mother Nature.

  • Riddlywalker

    Do the botanical scientists designing things like terminator genes really imagine that they are advancing human knowledge? Improving the world? The destruction of local economies by Monsanto and other corporations has to end now.

  • Yes, there is a plot, watch the movie “Thrive” available at http://www.thrivemovement.com and see how the governments are “under” the control of corporate interests for the policing of the people by a few families.

    Wake up people, your very life is at stake here.

    ONLY EAT ORGANIC FOOD!

  • Karen Scribner

    Genetic seed modification requires gold for the process (see Future of Food). Does all this pushing of gold ownership have something to do with the GMO situation?

  • Paul

    If “you are what you eat” then I have become GMOed myself. I don’t remember anyone asking me if I wanted to get modified. It’s hardly a wonder why autism, ADHD, cancer, et al are proliferating at an exponential rate.

  • namunez

    Why would they wanna put prescription drugs and vaccines in plants or in french fries? What is the idea behind this?

    • Darlene

      Their idea is population reduction and dumb out the masses so they won’t even question what is going on …. thats why flouride is in our water….. check into Hitlers use of Flouride and reason for giving it to prisoners… it is the ingredient in rat poison also….. pure evil!!!!

  • Tiger

    Thank you for the article. Frightening.

  • CJB in Abq.

    What will happen to our world if that terminator gene gets loose? In one generation we lose plants…what if it mutates and infects humans and other animals?

    • They are seedless, meaning to say the fruits are seedless to stop the farmers from producing it. These farmers are enslaved to buy the seeds from them.

  • Joan Miller

    I have met Percy and been to many events he has spoken at. He is an amazing, well informed person and has the knowledge to speak about this. GMO seeds have never been tested, so we do not know exactly what the long term effects are. Mandatory labeling has to become law in order for people to know what they are eating. For example, seeds are sometimes injected with DNA properties from animals, something that is not public information. We have a right to know this, especially if one is Vegetarian or even Vegan..this is crucial.

  • Gershwin

    Didn’t Mr. Schmeiser lose three court cases, including the Supreme Court? How exactly did he beat Monsanto? Not being funny, but they sued him and it was shown that he used Roundup to kill all non-GMO crops, then saved the seeds and replanted them.
    Or is Monsanto lying……?

    • Emma

      Yes, he lost in three separate court cases including one judged by the Canadian Supreme Court, though, he claims that he won these cases. He is delusional, didn’t win anything, and has been discredited and disproven time after time. Percy Schmeiser is no longer (nor was he ever) a source of information for the biotech industry. Here’s what Monsanto has to say about him: http://www.monsanto.com/newsviews/pages/percy-schmeiser.aspx (Check out the links to the court cases). Whoever wrote this, take a sixth grade Language Arts class, please. It’s called punctuation. This is the issue: those who lack credentials claim to be experts, and I think this is made very clear by this article. Monsanto would never sue anyone on illegitimate grounds; they’re not concerned with farmers giving them anything unless they’re blatantly breaching a seed contract, in which case they donate the winnings to charity. I don’t necessarily support Monsanto, but I’m not neurotic enough to think their goal is “world domination.” Are you kidding me? Wake up. There are issues with genetic engineering being ignored because of idiots like this preaching this crap. Please, before you believe radical and irrational claims like this, do some research of your own.
