Neil Young ha lanzado un cortometraje de 10 minutos de duración, llamado Seendig Fear.
Como reporta Rolling Stone, el mini- filme cuenta la historia del granjero Michael White, quien junto a su padre llevaron a la corte de justicia al gigante de la agricultura Monsanto.
La cinta acompaña su mas reciente lanzamiento ‘The Monsanto Years’, la cinta es acreditada a “Bernard Shakey” seudónimo usado por mucho tiempo por el mismo Young.
Escribiendo en su propia cuenta de Facebook Young aseguro:“Mientras escribo esto ‘the dark act’ esta por votarse en la camara de representantes, representantes de la gente. ‘The Dark Act’ se lleva los derechos de aquella gente que vota a favor o en contra de el etiquetado GMO en sus estados. Pareciera ser irónico, si el acta pasa, en verdad sera un dia muy obscuro para America”.
Acá la declaración original de Young:
“Monsanto is a corporation with great wealth, now controlling over 90% of soybean and corn growth in America. Family farms have been replaced by giant agri corp farms across this great vast country we call home. Farm aid and other organizations have been fighting the losing battle against this for 30 years now.
“Dairy and meat farming is done in those white sheds you see from the freeway, no longer on the green pastures of home with the old farmhouses and barns. Those beautiful buildings now stand in ruin across the country. This has happened on our watch while the country slept, distracted by advertising and false information from the corporations. Monsanto and others simply pay the politicians for voting their way. This is because of ‘Citizens United’, a legislation that has made it possible for corporations to have the same rights as people, while remaining immune to people’s laws.
“Both Democratic and Republican front runners are in bed with Monsanto, from Clinton to Bush, as many government branches are and have been for years. This presidential election could further cement the dominance of corporation’s rights over people’s rights in America. If you have a voice you have a choice. Use it.
“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.
“Thanks for reading this and I hope you look at this simple and powerful film, ‘Seeding Fear’.”
