Of course we should eat more vegetables and less meat, but the lie, that says that burning the Amazon, to plant GM Soya to ship across the world, is #sustainable is just that.

A lie.

Next time you sip a Soya Latté in a compostable cup, toast Monsanto, as they toast the Amazon.
In Ireland, if you want to farm you buy or lease land at €15,000 an acre.

In Brazil, if you want to farm, you buy or borrow a box of matches.

Monsanto will sell you GM seed that is #glyphosate resistant.

No weeding needed and Europe will buy it.
In Europe, we are being conned by the lie, that is Soya

Burning the #Amazon to plant and poison GM Soya for our plant based diets and compostable cups makes #PalmOil production look green!

Eat less meat, but look local, look sustainable and look beyond the hype.

Thank you
