After a three-year-long battle between multinational corporation Monsanto and local Malvinas citizens and anti-GMO campaigners from across Argentina, one of Monsanto’s half-completed multi-million dollar GMO seed plants will be dismantled. According to March Against Monsanto, the plant would have been Monsanto’s second largest operation in Latin America.

In 2014, activists forced Monsanto to stop the construction of the facility through well-coordinated protests at the construction site. Ever since the building of the site was put on hold, protesters have been marching, petitioning and talking to the government as well as Monsanto to urge them to abandon their plan to build the GMO seed facility.

The protests in Argentina have been marked by two words that made their point very clear: “Fuera Monsanto,” which translates as “Get out Monsanto.”

Adios Monsanto
