The establishment of Biowatch
The proliferation of GM crops
Biowatch, Monsanto and the state: securing access to information about GM crops
Challenging the costs order
Lessons and conclusions.
"Anyone campaigning for environmental or social justice needs to read this feel-good David and Goliath account of how a reasonable request for access to GMO permit applications catapulted an environmental watch-dog into almost a decade of litigation against the South Africa state and monolithic Monsanto. This publication, by the founding trustees of Biowatch, documents the organisation's courageous battle to overturn two unjust costs orders, providing an insider's perspective on the organisational toll and lessons learnt. A story of right over might, it demonstrates what courage and tenacity can achieve and serves as an inspiration to civil society and a warning to those pursuing narrow profit motives at the expense of the environment."--Back cover.
