Activists' Goal Keeping Haitians in Poverty

Monsanto wants to help the Haitian people by donating proven hybrid seeds which will result in higher yields and greater crop diversification. However, because they are a corporation mindless activists with no personal stake in the issue are strenuously opposing and lying about this on the grounds that anything a corporation does has to be evil. In his excellent article about the situation Paul Driessen points out that anti-hybrid activists have the right to reject hybrid seeds but “thousands of other Haitian farmers want to plant Monsanto seeds. Their right to choose must also be respected – not denied by intolerant protesters, who are largely funded and guided by well-fed First World campaigners.”
