"Monsanto's seeds will be distributed by the United States Agency for International Development's (USAID) WINNER program. USAID is a tax-payer funded agency that promotes the United States' interests abroad. It is run by Dr. Rajiv Shah, an Obama appointee that the Organic Consumers Association opposed because of his work with the explicitly pro-GMO Gates Foundation."
Monsanto is one of the most disgusting corporations conceivable if not the most disgusting. The US wiped out Haiti's food self-sufficiency when it dump American subsidized rice on Haiti and demanded onerous anti-Haiti farming measures of Haiti as conditions for "aid" and probably to avoid America's "protection" racket. Either you do what we, the businessmen of America say, or we'll have our goons (often the Marines; you know, "the proud") break your legs (assassinate your leaders or overthrow them in illegal, CIA-backed coups).
