I consider Monsanto one of the most sinister companies out there. This helps confirm this.

I really hope they are eventually booted out of Germany. I'm not a fan of them after hearing how they sued farmers for violating their patents because they happened to be located next to another farmer using their products. They couldn't exactly stop their fields from getting cross pollinated.

perhaps the villain is the law? 

Quote
a district court in the Bavarian city of Augsburg ordered Bablok to stop selling, or even giving away, his honey. As a result, he became Germany's first beekeeper who delivered his honey to a waste incineration facility.

what is the demonstrated damage done by GM pollen in a hive?  in honey?  none that i know of.  Monsanto may or may not be "evil".  they do make it possible for crops to be grown with fewer pesticides and less loss, thus keeping cost and poisoning (of our hives) down.  seems this might be a net win for all?

the have deep  pockets and they are a money making, big, and innovative company.  this very often = target.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
